Deanna, “The Mediterranean Mama”
Hi folks! Let me introduce myself: fellow Foodie & Fattie here, located in New York City and on the hunt for some of the best Mediterranean foods around, both outside of my kitchen and in! Growing up in a household where my Italian dad was making homemade pasta and fried meatballs, and a Lebanese mother whipping up a batch of homemade hummus, I am always looking for something to bring me back to those lovely kitchen memories. I believe lamb and mint (fresh mint, not that jelly crap) go together like peanut butter and jelly, and a Sunday dinner just isn’t complete without a glass (oh, who am I kidding… let’s make it a bottle) of red wine. Join me as I scour this city that never sleeps for the best of what those Mediterranean flavors have to feature, and hoping to re-create them in my own 2×4 kitchen in Brooklyn. You can also find me cooking with my best friend on our own food blog at http://www.thegourmetpantry.
