Welcome to Kitchen Chat!
… a gathering place to sample and share. I’m Margaret Mcsweeney, your host. Some people say that the kitchen is the heart of the home, but I think that the kitchen is the heart of the world, and food is the universal language. My dad was an amazing home chef who found such joy in cooking. I wish I had taken the time to join him in the kitchen. So here I am today — not a very good cook but eager to experience, explore, and share the “joy of cooking.” I hope you will join me on this culinary journey. Together we will:
CREATE taste memories that are both healthy and delicious with leading cookbook authors;
NAVIGATE the culinary world with top chefs and tastemakers;
PARTICIPATE in discovering new food trends and experiencing different cuisines;
APPRECIATE the design, taste and presentation of food artistry and entertaining; and of course
CHOCO”LATE” by sampling the sweetness in life to savor the day.
Please grab an extra chair or kitchen stool and gather around the green granite island or the glass top table for some Kitchen Chat. Let’s talk about what’s on your mind and what’s in your refrigerator. Please share some delicious recipes, favorite spices and your best cooking tip.What would you like to learn how to cook next? What questions do you have for chefs and food experts that are on the show? What culinary topics do you want to learn more about? I would love to hear from you! firstname.lastname@example.org
As the Brazilians say, “Aproveite!” which means Enjoy! I, however, like to translate “Aproveite” to mean Savor the Day!
