Dr. Ede is one of those amazing women who is as smart as she is warm, funny and engaging. When I asked her to do a cooking video with me, she said, “I’d love to, but I’m not sure I’m the right person. I don’t do recipes.” She went on to explain that she has significant food sensitivities that restrict her diet significantly, but she agreed to send me a list of foods that were safe for her to eat. When I received the one-page food list for Dr. Ede, I’ll admit that I was more than a little intimidated that I could develop a recipe that she could eat and enjoy. When we made the video and she tasted the dish for the first time, both of us nearly cried! She was thrilled that she could eat a recipe, and I was thrilled that she actually enjoyed it. We hope that you enjoy it too!
