Everyone in my family is an appreciative eater, but my Mother is the Cook! She’s my inspiration for all I’ve accomplished in the kitchen. She says her boundless energy is due to great food — while that’s certainly true, there’s more to that story. Coming from a terrifyingly difficult childhood in war-ravaged Germany, my Mama’s fearless adventurousness brought her to the US, where she met my Argentine dad. Growing up, our kitchen was truly a melting pot: the table was laden with interesting foods from all cultures, fueled by my Mother’s curiosity, creativity, and willingness to tackle any project!
This series of posts (a work-in-progress) is to honor the positive force-of-nature that is my Mother. Sharing her German heritage with my daughter Lucia has been nourishing beyond belief. Please stay tuned: there’s more to come!
