“Food has played a complex role in my life. Having grown up in my grandparent’s pastry shop in the Basque Country, there was a natural familiarity around food. In my youth, I turned toward this comfort to quell my anxieties. In my twenties, I developed a secret eating disorder that led me to isolation but beautifully, it was this same relationship with food, that lead me toward health: I realized that cooking for other people was in fact my way out of isolation and depression. Later on I became a professional pastry chef and food stylist. As a blogger and photographer, I found an outlet to obsess over food in a new and balanced way. And now, by using food as a medium, I am able to explore my life and those around me through cooking. This video series explores this relationship of food and community.” –Aran Goyoaga
Michelle mentioned blogger/chef Ara Goyoaga new video series ‘A Cook’s Remedy’ and although I am not wont for more distractions, I had to immediately hop on over and see what all the fuss was about. Insert a nice long exhale here. What beauty! These wonderful little videos will make you wish you could come hang in the PNW with Aran. The videos are wonderful little gems, full of honesty, beauty and inspiration. They are well worth taking a little break and visiting if you are in the market for a little repast from all the angsty news, we are wishing Aran a ton of success on this new project and can’t wait for more episodes to come out!
