What Taste Has Taught Me: Skye McDaniel on Community Inspired Meals

What Taste Has Taught Me: Skye McDaniel on Community Inspired Meals

I think I've had my hands in just about every part of taste, Skye says sitting back in the chair next to her dining room table. She's a chef whose career is made as much of community as it is of food. I haven't seen a kitchen or counter or dining room table she hasn't stirred curiosity and laughter in. 

Cooking shows you who people are; eating together shows you how people have relationships. Skye writes recipes by hand, plays with ingredients together and alone; cooking a meal means more than one set of hands in the kitchen, she listens and pulls a wide array of expertise together to make meals that celebrate the ingredients and make creative combinations feel familiar and comforting.

Skye leans in; into her community, into her environment, into what her hands are making, into her neighbors, into good food, into challenges, into conversations.

Taste is made by so many people; from those who harvest, to those who ship, to those who shelve, to those who slice and serve. A community designs food, so why shouldn't meals reflect the feeling of gathering around a table and sharing a meal? That's what it's all about anyways, food is a space everyone is welcome to share.
