I’m getting practice cooking in front of people. What a lift to see this article on my book in the Columbia Tribune today! (http://www.columbiatribune.com/arts_life/food/biting-into-food-culture-worldly-writer-discovers-a-sense-of/article_11d689b1-de06-5ab3-880e-db0957dac902.html) Food editor Marcia Vanderlip and photographer Vivian Agagiu were fun visitors to my kitchen at the farm. The aroma was warm and inviting, and the company even better.
All this practice bodes well for the cooking demonstration at World Harvest this Saturday, January 17, fro 2-4 p.m. I’ll have a burner. I’ll have spices. All I need is you to smile, nod encouragement, and nosh on samples. Please come out to support the store if you are in the Columbia area, I am but a diversion. The family-run business is a Columbia gem–rich in it’s own story of culture, tradition, assimilation and belonging. Great food and spices, too!
