A Letter from the Chef

Contained in a recipe is a treasure of knowledge. Look deep enough and a dish tells you what’s available and what’s scarce for the cook, what’s important to them to show off- their medicine, religion, politics, history, economics. It’s all in the food that’s served to you.

In short, a recipe is a letter from the chef connecting you to them in the most intimate, human, life-giving way.
