Simply Irresistible Food.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Simply Irresistible.”

as soon as i saw this prompt i started to laugh because all i could hear in my head was Robert Palmer singing that song.

Food is simply irresistible, not that I’m fat and can’t stop eating or i have to join a group for eating too much. i just find food a way to build community, culture and soulful friends. I became a chef, because i liked how people bonded with each other over food.

when i was  a child i started cooking with my Mom and Grandmother, yes we are italian and she was always in the kitchen, but isn’t that where the heart is?  food became a bonding experience for my family and my friends.  So most of the food i crave is food that has a deeper meaning to me, here are the ones i created with family and friends.

here are some foods that  i love.
