In the kitchen since she could hold a spoon, long-time foodie & Hipcooks San Diego Manager Jen finds relaxation at the stove. She rarely makes the same meal twice, doesn’t measure much, and cooks from the heart. She says there's no shame in eating an entire loaf of French bread with a wheel of brie in one sitting.
"Everyone can enjoy home-cooked meals at a fraction of the cost of going out. It's a great way to share a part of yourself, & it doesn't have to be fancy or expensive."
Joe grew up in a bustling Italian kitchen, a home-cooked meal always on the table. Joe has adapted this tradition to his own busy life, where he makes it a priority to provide fresh meals to his family each day. How does he do it? By being passionate about shopping smart, making-ahead & re-purposing leftovers.
