In this short series, I will be sharing some valuable lessons I learned while cooking with my hero, my mother, the blind chef!
Starting with this one, I would say one of my favorite lessons is that Fusion takes food to a whole new level!
I still remember one time when I was a kid, mom confused the Ketchup Jar with the Nutella Chocolate Jar while making pasta. A friend of mine had been invited to our place, and guess what? I decided to give it a try anyway. This was back in 2001, and in those years chocolate pasta was not what you would call trending. I loved it anyway!
Once I started growing older and turning into the healthy foodie I am, mom expressed her creativity in fusing food altogether; especially sauces. For example, she cooks chicken breast with labne cheese dressing and tahini. We mix peanut butter and eggs. We do crazy stuff, and the crazier the fusion, the better!
So don't be afraid to insert ingredients you love together, especially when it is not something you have tried before. Get creative and enjoy the food!
