An appetite for ethnic cooking
One in a series of occasional stories about a local food group.
As one who was born in Korea and raised in Brazil, Min Kim proudly draws from both wells to prepare the culinary specialties of each culture.
The Inquirer is presenting an occasional series of stories featuring the local food group, Forking Delicious. The seven women in their 30s and 40s were strangers when they found each other through an online posting in 2005. A culturally diverse group, these are working women who express their creativity and their emotional generosity through food. They meet monthly in one another's homes.
Follow along as the women plan a culinary adventure in Umbria.
Cookbook goes outside the jar
Maureen Petrosky, a sommelier with twin toddlers, agreed to take the cookbook, Food Adventures, for a test-drive.
She says she found a lot to like: The chapters start with purees and broths and continue with making the most of that window of opportunity when little ones are grabbing at your food anyway - when they want to feel included in the family meal.
