Want to know the first meal Super Sous and I shared? Or our favorite restaurant in LA?
Super Sous and I were excited to participate in The Fare Trade’s All’s Fare in Love and Food project – where all these answers are revealed!
If you haven’t heard about The Fare Trade – they send a delicious box of artisanal food to your doorstep every month. We got to play with Jacobsen Salt and Grist and Toll products (in addition to other goodies) – seriously these boxes are AMAZING.
And, we created 2 special recipes!
Mark your calendars and join me in celebrating ocean-friendly seafood during October – National Seafood Month – by enjoying a sustainable seafood taco on NATIONAL TACO DAY, this SATURDAY, October 4! (What a great day!) Chefs across the country are joining together to give this year’s celebration a sustainable twist and so can you.
Choose a seafood from Seafood Watch’s best choice list to make your own sustainable seafood tacos at home OR you can use my recipe for Spiced Mahi Mahi tacos with Salsa Fresca and Chipotle Crema. Either way, be sure to share your dish on social media using the hashtags: #MakeItSustainable #taco

Dreams do come true! Today, Super Sous and I got to visit America’s Test Kitchen in Brookline, MA-a cook’s playground, to say the least!!!
What’s that you say? Oh, it’s my recipe for Cinnamon Sweet Potato Purée from my cookbook, Great Food Starts Fresh, in the latest issue of O Magazine! I teamed up with City of Hope Hospital to promote their research with superfoods and their role in fighting cancer. Grab the September issue of O and enjoy!
