A Curious Palate is a celebration of delicious food, simple gatherings, and small pleasures – a Friday night supper, the harvest from a backyard garden, a neighborhood restaurant, or a local market, which may be close to home or thousands of miles away. It's about tasting, experimenting and sharing the most savory bits of life.
I owe my love of food and cooking to my mother, who encouraged me at an early age into the kitchen and who happily ate whatever I concocted. (I later realized that she was secretly plotting to abdicate her culinary responsibilities as soon as possible). And to my father for always allowing me a small patch of his vegetable garden to plant what I wanted. A few decades and countless dinner parties later, I still love playing in the kitchen and the dirt and trying out new things on my guests. I especially love recreating favorite dishes I've enjoyed abroad.
I hope you'll discover some moments of inspiration here and that you will weave them into your own food journey.
