As I sat on my sofa, clicking through my favorite food television networks, I came across Daisy Cooks!
I smiled as I watched her move around in the kitchen so effortlessly. Oh my, a Latina like myself, cooking and sharing her traditions on the television screen. I immediately fell in love with Daisy and cooking even more.
I made sure to catch every segment of her show and watched it studiously every single time. Because of her, I looked good in the kitchen. Not only did I learn useful tips and tricks to perfect my cooking style but I began to see cooking as an art, a talent, and my passion!
You see, Daisy has this thing about her. She doesn’t just cook. Daisy prepares her dishes with a Latin flair that sticks! Daisy shares her recipes and her memories and how those memorable moments shape her every dish. She cooks with love and sabor (flavor).
In Daisy, I saw me. I saw the little girl who looked up at her mami as she whipped up dinner, the young girl with a passion in the kitchen. The woman who never hesitates to take on the task at hand, whether it be an intimate dinner with my family or a family party full of hungry guests.
Tomorrow a dream of mine will become a reality. I’ll be cooking a special dinner alongside Daisy Martinez herself! Can you believe it? A dream come true in Daisy’s very own kitchen! (Pinch me now!) I’ll be savoring not only the delectable dishes on the menu, but every single moment.
Stay tuned for photos, videos, and blogs about this educational and unforgettable experience!
What do you think we will cook?
