“food is a basic need, but it’s also so much more than that. i view food as an instrument of connection. it connects us to the earth, to one another, and to our ancestors. food is emotional. it tells stories of the past, connects us to memories and grounds us in the present. i’ve had the privilege of growing up in the kitchen, creating memories with elders that cooked with so much love. from them, food became my love language.
