Talking Points

Social distancing can turn anyone into a creative genius by tapping into that part of us where imagination meets application. Imagination kicks into survival mode by combining thoughts, ideas, memories, and capabilities. Perhaps that is why I enjoy cooking so much. There are no set rules. Guidelines, yes. But rules? Not so much. Thankfully, I am married to a man who eagerly accepts the challenge of taste-testing new foods or simply trying our favorite foods a new way. Whenever we travel, we nose around art fairs and antique shops for interesting kitchenware. I have become a collector of “talking flatware”, which are spoons, forks, and knives with words stamped on them. I guess you could say I have a dialogue with my food, which brings me to this segment of Talking Points. Some of my posts have been favored by the “Food Network” on Twitter (Snapshotsincursive @DornaGail) as well as Ina Garten’s The Barefoot Contessa, on Instagram (gail _dorna). You can even find me on Pinterest at Gail Dorna. I’d love to connect with you there as well. I also met Chef Michelle Tribble of Hell’s Kitchen reality cooking show. Fun times. Experience different flavors and textures one bite at a time. Catch a glimpse of “Eating My Way Through the Alphabet: Talking Points!”. This remarkable journey of the palate is unique because it gives me a few moments with you. Thanks very much to all of my guests and followers on for the uplifting support, award nominations, and moving words of encouragement.
