“ The only thing that makes me happier than throwing together a pot of pasta or tending to a slow winter braise is sitting down to enjoy the results with good company. I draw cooking inspiration from the seasons, my mood, travel and childhood memories, and from years and years spent working in restaurants. ”
Sarah’s years of experience serving in restaurants, her passions for travel and cooking, and personal childhood memories serve as inspiration for Strawberry Plum, a blog where seasonal meals are served with a touch of nostalgia.
When sharing a recipe for Calamari and Artichoke Soup, Sarah writes, “Many of my favorite dishes are the ones that have the ability to transport. You inhale, take a bite, and suddenly you’re off exploring the world or being whisked back a couple of decades and remembering a dinner you ate half a lifetime ago.”
The same is the case for her Chilled Strawberry Soup, served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The sweet, refreshing taste takes her back to childhood days of gorging on fruit while berry-picking with her family. Sarah loves to cook for family and friends, and Strawberry Plum serves as a journal of food memories in the making. No matter what comes out of her kitchen, you can count on delicious, seasonal produce, and accessible, satisfying recipes.
