What was one of Samin's favorite places to travel to see how food was made? I'll give you a hint. She is eating Parmesan cheese, something I never eat, but this show and scene had me salivating for it. The great thing about @ciaosamin is she makes cooking, eating and trying anything joyful. We talk about getting over insecurities, fear, and failure, and I just love her approach to trying new things.
This is my favorite picture from today...Donna showed me how to make the perogy & I was fascinated how easily her hands molded the dough & carefully pressed the filling in to this tiny pocket of love. I was mildly obsessed with her perogy perfection - this handmade act of love...the lines of her hands telling a story of years of experience & her willingness to share. Seek the opportunity to learn from your family, your friends, your community. Such a gift.
Who inspires you the most? When I was little, I’d stand in the kitchen next to my Great Grandma and watch her cook. If she needed a recipe, they were on a notecard. What the recipe didn’t have were measurements. A dash of this, a handful of that, a pinch of this. It drove my mom crazy. But, it taught me that cooking is from love and not measurements. We don’t have to follow recipes to make delicious food. So, when I grew up, I realized that the best cooking is how my Great Grandma cooked. With love and joy in your kitchen. Who inspires you the most? Who taught you to cook?
😍 the time is near
My favorite time of year is around the corner. I absolutely love the holiday season because I go over board in making all my favorite dishes and desserts.
With more time on my hands I'm sure I'll be trying new recipes this year.
Last night, I had a special dinner request...😉 Sicilian themed dinner for my handsome nephews 17th Birthday!!!
