My first bites

A few weeks ago, Gail Shepherd from the Broward/Palm Beach New Times reached out to me about a new feature on their Short Order blog. The feature, called First Bites, would highlight the first food memories of local “food people” and she asked me to tell her about mine. Though I could’ve gone the “I remember spending hours in the kitchen with my grandma route…” I opted for another food memory that though not my earliest, was meaningful. That’s not to say I didn’t have my share of grandmother memories. My two jobs in her kitchen were shelling peas and shredding chicken for her ajiaco, and I loved doing it but I just thought I’d go with something more unique to me. So with that, I leave you with my “First Bites” mini-memory

PS: I must apologize for the scarce posting lately. I won’t go into what’s keeping me busy again, but I do promise more frequent posting starting now.
