This is the first entry of a meal by Alison, which is somewhat misleading — we don’t know why we didn’t get around to writing anything about her food before because 1. she still cooks the most in the family and 2. everything she cooks is delicious. So, sorry Mom, and here you go! (Maybe we’ll blame her delay in meeting the chief blogger’s suggested draft deadline, although that might not even be true. Hard to say.)
Recipe: Turkish-Spiced Chicken Kebabs with Pomegranate Relish and Tahini Yogurt
We should probably introduce our four chefs, huh? We’ll start with Alison (see her back there?), since this was her whole idea in the first place and she’s the best resource for any of the family’s many cooking questions.
We offer the biased (but still true) report that she is an excellent cook and we are quite lucky that she fed us, almost singlehandedly, for a long time. Now, what’s her role in the family dinner preparation schedule? Well, she’s not as inclined to turn cooking into a competition and perhaps feels less need to prove her skills in the kitchen…making her meals no less delicious, of course.
She’s agreed to answer some questions regarding her food style/preferences/dislikes (and we’ve decided to include her idiosyncratic formatting) – here goes:
We have big plans to make ketchup at home, so we’ll report back on whether or not she’ll eat that.
And here’s a picture of the popcorn ball cooperation she mentioned – a very fun family tradition on Christmas Eve.
