Culture has always been synonymous with food for me. Being from a large city with countless inhabitants whose people originate from far away places is as exciting as it is delicious. As a child, I loved to try new foods from different countries. It told me about what was important to that culture, which is usually family. It is also a great lesson in sustainability. A quick glance at any culture’s food teaches about what is local to the region [...]

I can’t tell tell you how many times I skip meals and just graze on whatever is around me.  By the time I get home I am famished and hangry (hungry + angry). Whoever is in my path is going to get destroyed, so let this be your warning. I forget to enjoy my food. I forget that I can really love food. I forget that food is an important element that keeps us alive. Loving food is something I [...]

www.fibrenew.com While sitting at dinner with my husband and my friends a few nights ago, the topic of oils came up.  What oil can I (Elizabeth) have? What oil has a high heat? What is the truth about olive oil?  When the four of us were discussing this, none of us had an exact answer and left even more confused about the oils we should use for cooking, baking, frying, sautéing, dressing, etc. EVOO has become a household [...]

This makes for a very frustrating and irritable cook! When I cook in the kitchen during the summer time, I have to think about what I can make that won’t make my house 100°F. This is very [...]
