"megan trumbull" Discussed on The Zest

"About dessert? Well in Europe. The theme is they have deserved at least once maybe twice a day but it's not like like we deserve. They eat fresh fruit. So they'll have some grapes. They'll have a slice of watermelon. They might have half an apple. The two people split slice. And that's dessert. That's part of their traditional everyday desert. They'll also make something like I put in. Near Blueberry very you know ricotta cheese cake. They will have that for a special occasion. They don't have. It's not a band food thing. It's not like no carbs or or no fat or knowing that this protein there there are no if it's real food it's not banned. It's meant to be enjoyed on occasion. I love that philosophy a yet they save those things for special occasions with people you know so they. It's a fruit is an in a once. Once or twice a day event her dessert and then once in a while on a on a you know Friday evening Sunday afternoon. They'll make a real special dessert like you know a grandma souffle or chocolate Mousse or the cheesecake. I mentioned you know something like that just once in a while just once in a while so when you're speaking with the fishmongers or the market stall proprietors I mean are you speaking to them and their own language. I speak fluent French and Spanish. Oh you do get by in some Italian. It's not great. My Greek is limited. I probably have twenty or thirty words. My Turkish really not so good doll hole. I Won't shame you for that. Having at least two languages really does help so besides English in addition to English now now. Where's your favorite port? Pay Freight favorite port of call yourself about how so many I mean. Take take me with you. Stephen Course. Sailing around Corsica in France was wonderful at a senior is incredible the the food was great. Eight the best food markets. Though were in Spain like Valencia. We spent a week in Valencia on the Mediterranean coast is gorgeous historic town. The market building is like out of Julius Caesar Times. I mean but it's fantastic. They you're tasting everything. They're selling olives olives and pickles and wine and olive oil and dark chocolate and all these things they have you taste before you buy them. I love that so I guess you wouldn't Sale around to the land that would be rougher sailing around literally down the French Atlantic coast around northern Spain around Portugal to dead into into the Mediterranean. Oh that's we started in northern Spain in northern France you bought the boat. They brought the boat in France and then sailed into the Mediterranean then spent a a seven months sailing. Yes so that would have been tough. There's not like an intercoastal waterway that you could've gone just it's open ocean sailing. Yeah wow that's exciting. How big is your boat or did you feed your Catamaran? Nice boat does so. There's kind of a the whole Mediterranean lifestyle though outside I guess absolutely so some of the benefit clearly comes from the nutrients in the food unmistakably mistakenly yet there's other benefits that come from how they live that are clearly make the Mediterranean lifestyle overall and make them return giant. Look good I mean just for an example. They're more active than we are in the. US they walk more. I mean typically they walk to work or bicycle to work or walk to the grocery store every day. We don't really do that. There is a process and whether you're in France or Italy or Spain or Greece people walk in the evening the before or after dinner the whole family goes for a stroll and they might be out want instead of watching a screen. Whether it's their computer television thorughout walking in the community in visiting people so there's social connection with the two and then when they eat their meals are long leisurely. I don't think think we ever had a meal in Europe. In a seven month period. That was under ninety minutes really inao leisurely no way we do that. It's leisurely and it's with people. For example. We had a couple of times workers on the boat mechanic. Or someone you know sailmaker or something. Eighteen and I'm making recipes right and so I'm saying hey. Would you like to try this. And they look at me like well yes. I'd like to try it but I don't have time to sit down for a whole meal now. They don't get they. Don't just take sit and take his standup bite or a snack. Either they sit for a meal and they talked and they communicate or or they don't eat so you know they they don't eat much breakfast. Maybe Coffee Little Fruit Yogurt. Maybe sometimes eggs on the weekend but mostly they have a big lunch and a big dinner right. Well that's I mean it's fun to hear about that kind of lifestyle to learn about it but we're not going to change our culture so we're going to have to adapt. These recipes are quicker lifestyle. We could though adapt in the sense that we eat food out a table bowl with people and not have a television or a computer screen or a phone on and we talk about the food and communicate. So I think that's something we we really should be doing for our health and be more active to being outdoors. You know. They eat food outside more often there with nature more often. I think there's several aspects aspects of a Mediterranean lifestyle that we would benefit if we tried to use more of them and I tried to put that kind of information in the book. I think it would. They have far lower rates. Having designing the pressure may do and I think a lot of it has to do with how they live. There's selling wonderful tips to start off the New Year Dr Steven Massively.

"Kids kids are playing in the sand. Or whatever. And then you know the day would culminate with actually having a fire on the beach and making it tomato sauce there whereas you know later on a lot of people within go home and do it there so now we've gotta have to buy the crabs right crab meat right and then what do we do So you're gonNA similar it with Your to start with this afrita dislike. We don't any other dish. So it's Onions peppers tomatoes does And then you're GonNa make tomato sauce and you know I I like a lot of the old versions that I've had but I find that they're a little thick it's really really really thick with tomato and tomato paste and I really think it's a little too much is too heavy for the kind of the crab So I found that a lighter sauce is Works a lot nicer. I've had I've had plenty of people come to me at you. Know after making condition saint I was great And there's a few times like you know it's got beer in it and things like that that other people might not have Lightened it up as much But every time I doubt myself I make the dish again. And I'm like this is fabulous Whereas the you know the old versions were really heavy and it was really a lot out of thick tomato This is a lot a little lighter and it lets the I think the crab come through more. And why do you associate this. crabshoot allow with the Gasparilla. Well I mean I think it's It's the opposite of the Cuban Sandwich where you've got like a personal meal on his portable. There's nothing portable affordable but crabs allow really This is like same thing you were talking about before if you when you go to your friend's house along route. This is the kind of thing you're going to be making. Yeah Yeah and it's just it's one of those things that's probably the most Tampa out of all the Tampa dishes. You know you can say chicken a yellow rice but you can get that all across the Caribbean And the United States crabs allow. I think is a different story in that. It really is something. that sort of developed organically here. You know Where you know? You've got the pasta. You know is is obviously supplied by the Italians and then you know the sauce itself is anybody's guess. It's hard to tell where the you know. Kind of Italian starts. The Cuban starts and it all blends together. I think that's when you know you have neighborhoods like West Tampa Empa- and And ebor city. Where people you know? They're they're in these Kasetsart like ten feet away from each other so everyone smelling each other's cooking And I think that had a lot to do with breaking down some barriers you know whereas in places like Chicago or New New York. You'd have little Cuba you. You know little Spain you know little Italy whereas here it was all really mixed up. And they were living in really close quarters so interesting so I I think that's where fusion food happens spontaneously over time this is one where it's impossible possible to extricate the dish so you know you can't take Italian. DNA or identify where the Cuban DNA is. Exactly it's all all mixed up all right. We'll look forward to gasparilla this year. I'm GONNA try some of these dishes that we're GonNa have these recipes on our website. Andy thank you so much for being here this this is my pleasure. Have a good time. Sounds like you do all right. I know they're building a new house this year. So party said really out darn we have. We have a good time that was US F..

When the Junior League of Tampa I published? It's Gasparilla Kobuk back in nineteen sixty one on the list of contributors read like a WHO's who of Tampa social and business elite. We visited the Junior League of Tampa headquarters on Davis Islands to chat with Stephanie. Haas and Laura Halse Laura served as the League's Cookbook Chair from nineteen seventy three to nineteen seventy four and she talked to us about the cultural cultural importance of this cookbook to the community. Laura why do you think that it became such a institution in Tampa Bay cooking. I think the timing was right to my knowledge. There had not been another Tampa cookbook. I know many years ago there was a restaurant here called the cricket tea room and they did a little small cookbook but there was not a cookbook as such and I think so. Many prominent Tampa people people had wonderful recipes that had been handed down from their mothers and grandmothers and everyone loves to read it. Not It just the recipes but the history that was in there as well it's true the histories and they all start out with a story and they talk about what life was like in those days this she did it bring. Does it bring back memories to you when you well. It does especially the coffee punch because that was a must at every coffee tea we sometimes even an luncheons and the wonderful little cheese biscuits which I make to this day when I have company so yes and and congealed salads which must and I still love them and still make them often but there the whole way people eight then I mean that was before organic foods and green markets. And all of that and you went to one of the local Oh grocery stores and you bought the ingredients and if it said large Lord you know and if it said Oleo which you don't see that too much anymore though he bought overly but I don't think people were nearly as cavalry conscious in the seventies as they are today. Well Oh I think. Part of the charm part of the charm as is from a different era and it is kind of a testament to the way people lived in the fifties and sixties sixties. How Florida was when you could go out onto the beach and just find enough blue? Crabs to make a SU- some of the chapters open with the the chapters on meat and venison are and quail our our husbands go on the weekends and they hunt and these are the recipes that we use to make the the wild Turkey the roast leg venison the quail and chafing dish. It was a different way of living. And that's just part of the of the fun and the charm of looking through these recipes recipes. Not that you're GonNa make necessarily a roast leg of innocent every weekend now but it's just the fun of seeing how maybe your grandmothers lived and it really really is a history of Tampa. It's a history of cooking and it's a history of entertaining because a lot of with those recipes really were used for entertaining at lunches and dinners cocktail parties. It wasn't just a run infix something quick for dinner. Well let's go ahead and try some of the things that you've brought this. We have some iconic dishes here year. One Who wants to talk about talk about this all right. I'm Stephanie Haas Communications Manager but the Tampa and just say no the tupperware still does make Jello Jello mold so you can get those on Amazon. But this is the Avocado buttermilk ring and it is garnished with watercress in grapefruit slices so it is a giant fluffy avocado. Wow Okay so you have this on a beautiful cake dish. It really does look pretty. It looks very spring party. Ish Yeah it is bringing summary and it does call and this is the first time I've ever done this. It called for green food coloring in a savory dish which I've never done before so that gives it some of its tint besides the avocado but it could it looks like a Fluffy Avocado Salad in a ring. And then we have a better watercress of course with a few grapefruit places. Alright let's say shall we try it. Shall we try to try. What Oh you do me even began as as we pass out played? A lot of these recipes are big with adding Garni Ernie garnish with Mitt or watercress fruit slices sizes of fruit. Yes that looks really pretty the way. You've got the pink great slices in the middle of their. This looks very floridian this is I was thinking thinking it was going to be sweet to me. It looks like lime. Sherbert is what it looks like an eye but it is salty and it's like Guacamole it's very pretty Guacamo- lafi would you call it kind of it does have a hint of welcome only and now that I can do all kinds of things that I can talk to each other in the salad. I would definitely add some tomato. What add some Cuban and a few Jalapenos and you could literally have a real pretty guacamole? This is a different way to make it. Would you make this again this particular recipe. But I would absolutely start to experiment with what I could do with Knox Gelatin and mole. There's a whole chapter on congealed molds and love to do a congealed mold because they're usually put something in the center. One of my favorite things to do is tomato aspect. which is a congenial mold and I put shrimp or chicken salad in the center of vent? So you've got your seafood and then you've still call it salad rather than you know a congealed bring but you've got your salad and you've got your seafood or your chicken or whatever. Chicken Salad would have been great to put in the middle of this for Shrimp Salads. And and if looks pretty to make this looks beautiful with the water crass. But that's really pretty too when you mound the center with the the chicken salad or districts. Okay but I will be trying this really. Think every we have this loft that was former junior league of Tampa cookbook chair. Laura Holes and junior league members Stephanie.

"Copy for an Instagram Post? And also we need to talk about taking better pictures of food so again thinking about the quality polity for instagram. Especially on the grid. You really want to try to get the best images that you possibly can and contact. What's what's the grid grid back up? Okay so the grim ninety five years old okay so the grid is the front face of instagram. And then the back face is inside the stories so the biggest advice that I give is get the best image that you can and you could do that on your iphone phone now I paid. Oh my gosh so much equipment way back when now these iphones you could do a lot of it if you do have some cameras and by title means go ahead and use it. But you don't have to today. You could use portrait mode. You can take amazing pictures now if you look at Insa stories do you. You know what that is for those listeners. Who Don't know what it is okay? Please didn't disclose so. That's the fun of Instagram. So save I liked those killer images then on stories expand on those so those are the behind the scenes and those are just. Oh look at my hi dog. Look at my family said it does not have to be styled. It just has to tell the story about your day and in my case and also the clients that we work with. And that's a good point because people really want to connect with you. There are a lot of places where they could get a recipe but they want to feel a connection to you and I love seeing pictures of your food but equally up seeing pictures of your cute puppy thank you but that is really if you think about it. People WanNa see y everyday life is like we're living in a society that they wanna see behind the scenes and that you really are who you say you are any advice vice regarding picture this okay.

How can you get the best picture and your mouth is watering so you want to hurry up and get that picture and eat that food? And how can you quickly get a good picture. Okay so so my tips would be one if you could take it outside. Always sit outside because your natural light. That's what you're going to get that gorgeous portrait so that would be number one number two if you cannot you know always try to get ahead from up of head light so my family will tell you. They are infamous for constantly having their flashlight. Out On your need the other people eating with you to give you light on their phone. Oh Yeah that's not beneath beneath me. Trust me and then I would say it's so easy when I think back two years ago and we had to like download everything and then put it through photoshop. OP and everything's on your phone now. You could lighten almost anything so play around with it and you're always better catching that moment. The missing the moment.
