Q: How did you first learn to cook and what’s your cooking background?

Gabi: I learned to cook from a lot of different people and phases of my life. I spent some time working in a restaurant in college, but I’ve also spent a lot of time in the kitchen with friends and family from different cultures, mostly chatting and laughing over wine but occasionally picking up some really good recipes along the way.

Q: What’s your favorite dish to cook and why?

Gabi: My favorite dish changes all the time. It’s kind of like asking “what kind of music do you listen to” – it just depends on my mood. Right now I’m into really comforting foods- really hearty soups, homemade pasta, anything that warms you up from the inside out.

Q: What do you think about when you cook that dish, or when you cook in general?

Gabi: One of my favorite parts of cooking is that it’s one of the few activities that you can be focused and totally zoned out at the same time. I like to just lose myself in the process and not think about anything but what I’m doing.
