Have spoon will travel.

Vast cultural differences have influenced her perspective on food. Vibrant flavors, vivid colors, complementing textures lend to create exciting meals. Plain, simple grits won’t do. Grits with thyme, garlic, shallots and cheese are more like it.

Pamela started this blog to connect better with her viewers of “Charlotte Cooks”. She hopes the blog will lead to writing a book about food with interesting tidbits of origins, how to and recipes. This blog will feature failures and success because cooking and food are real in peoples lives. Not everything turns out perfect every time. Mistakes are pathways to new discoveries.

Pamela can be contacted at spoonfeast@gmail.com. She welcomes your comments and ideas. What you experience in the kitchen and around food is important, share!
