“When I feel like the day is great? Pasta. When I feel like I want the day to be great? Pasta. It’s just awesome.”- Jennifer Hyman
It would be impossible to discuss my love of travel and pasta without giving a special shout out to the friends and family who have inspired both. From my Italian friends, ( I met during a high school exchange program) who taught me the best brand of pasta to buy while in London – and the right way to cook it, to my grandfather who shared the family recipe passed down to him by my Italian great-grandmother, to my friend Gianna’s mom who taught me the correct way to bread a chicken for chicken maleness.
All of these people have played a major role in my love/addiction to pasta. They inspire me every day to try new things without the use of recipes and to discover my own ways of cooking pasta. Through their help and assistance, I have been able to use their guidance to make my own creations. One day I hope to be able to perfect a pasta that can be eaten for breakfast, similar to carbonara.
