TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT SUNDAY SUPPERS?
In the Spring of 2009 my husband and I started hosting communal cooking dinners in our apartment. The dinners were taught by a guest chef – we sourced local and seasonal ingredients, set a table and dined together. We started a blog for photos and recipes from the dinners. The posts started going viral, guests and strangers began emailing us to attend, and the response was overwhelming.
WHAT DO YOU SEE ON THE HORIZON FOR SUNDAY SUPPERS?
What’s amazing about Sunday Suppers is how organically it has evolved into so many different things, from events, to the cookbook. Having only just launched ILĀ, our line of ingredients, we are still very much focused on developing the line and adding expansions beyond the kitchen for the entire home. We are also working on our next book!
COOKING MAKES ME FEEL… Calm. It really is like a kind of therapy or meditation for me – I feel so at home when I’m in the kitchen
ESSENTIAL KITCHEN TOOL? a mortar and pestle – I love going old school and using it for sauces, garlic, herbs etc.
THREE INGREDIENTS YOU COULDN’T LIVE WITHOUT? Cyprus Salt, olive oil, fresh herbs
SOUNDTRACK IN YOUR KITCHEN? Right now my daughter, Sophia, is learning about Sam Cooke, so he’s been playing in the background while we cook lately.
CAN NEVER RESIST… a good meal (haha) ok, but in all seriousness a good meal with my husband and daughter – I can never resist that
MIDNIGHT SNACK? A really, really good chocolate chip cookie
QUIRKY FOOD HABITS? I don’t know how quirky it is, but, whenever I travel, I absolutely must carry with me a small container of flaky white salt – it’s just the perfect finishing touch to any dish, savory or sweet. Also, I happen to be a very slow eater, always have been.
