¿Celebras algo especial? Reservar toda la mesa
I come from a culture where food is the center of all social interactions. We eat, cook, and grow food together. The harmony between our communal existence and the food we consume began thousands of years ago. I grew up sharing meals with anyone, strangers, friends, or family. By age nine, I could cook many of the traditional dishes. I was involved in the daily activities of cooking around the house. I was privileged enough to grow up with a live-in household helper and a private professional chef. I fell in love with cooking while I watched them prepare our daily meals or special occasion meals. My love for cooking, the environment, and cultures intensified once I left for college. As a Biology major, I was interested in human relationships with the environment around us, specifically how we consume and protect the environment. While I enjoyed my scientific background, I was involved in sociology, anthropology, and public health department. Through cooking, I can share my love for cultures and the environment that sustains our lives.

Como será la experiencia en casa de Linda A.
What a wonderful New Years Eve dinner. The company represented all different ages and backgrounds coming together in joy and celebration. I learned so much about the foods of Africa, but also about the life in Congo, Ghana, Italy, California, the Bronx, etc. Delicious multicourse meal, my favorite course was the tomato pomegranate feta salad. Refreshing to have such an authentic experience in an otherwise disconnected city.
The overall experience was awesome. It' fantastic to meet people all over the world, and share stories about our life, we are all different but we all have something in common. Linda was a really great host. I feel to give her a suggestion for the future: don't loose too much time preparing the plate, because when it comes to the table it's already cold and it's a pity to loose the flavour of this delicious food! Location: the event was not in her house, but in a small restaurant really cute, but unfortunately the location was a little bit cold, I suggest to check the temperature before to start the dinner for the next time!
