I am a mother of three, a grandmother of two and I currently work as a Pilates and Gyrotonic instructor. I have continued to evolve as a cook and baker over my 40+ years of cooking. My current fascination is with vegetables--organic and as much as possible local. I have recently experimented with cutting down the amount of sugar used in my baking recipes and with using coconut palm sugar as a substitute for white sugar. I hope to work on a new cookbook this summer (2014)--in between clients--of course!
This picture shows me at a bar in Philadelphia called Salsa in the Square. I am there to dance Rueda, a kind of Cuban salsa dancing that is danced with a partner in a circle with other partners. There is a caller who either speaks or signs calls and then the participants do the figures. It involves lots of changing partners and is terrific fun.
My philosophy of life: savour life, have fun, keep moving and eat wholesome food!
10,000 Meals Later, Cooking with Garlic and Gusto
by Patty Segal
This book is intended to be a survival cook book of sorts. It is a combination of what I would hope to be “helpful ideas’” recipes, tips, and anecdotes for those men and women who feel somewhat committed to their kitchens, daily and nightly. Most of the recipes (other than cake and cookies) allow for substitution of ingredients or a variation in ingredients.
