What is the first meal you ever cooked?
I’m not sure I remember the very first, but one very early meal was homemade pizza. I was 11, and I put raw pork sausage on my humble homemade dough. Even after baking, my mom wouldn’t let us eat it.
If you had to blog about one ingredient every day for a year, what would it be?
One ingredient? I’d cleverly choose wheat, so I could talk about bread everyday.
I will never eat:
I don’t think there is anything I wouldn’t try, but I will never eat processed foods so much as I can help it!
Who would you love to have over for dinner?
If I could have anyone, I would pick Peter Reinhart. He seems like he would have a million great stories, and I’m sure I would learn a lot and be infinitely inspired in my baking life.
What is your all-time favorite recipe from your blog?
Lacto-Fermented Cilantro-Raisin Chutney. I know it sounds strange, which is why I dismissed it until I took my first taste. It goes well with everything, and I have had a perpetual jar in the fridge ever since I first posted about it. I always leave out the anise seed so my husband will also eat it.
