Our Interview with Dane!

May 28, 2021 by Kate Bezak

      

 

Our Cookbook Coverstar for our GLOBAL TASTE BUDS Cookbook is Dane!

 

 How did you first get interested in cooking? 

Dane's Response: I love cooking with my mom and its fun for me to say I made something that people enjoy eating.

 

 

 Your cookbook cover photo was taken during an online Sticky Fingers Cooking class where students made the Superbly Tasty Sweet ‘n Sour Thai Noodle Salad + Perky Pineapple Coolers recipe. What did you enjoy about that particular recipe? 

Dane's Response: I liked that it was something I would have never thought I would have liked and I did like it! I especially loved the drink, and everything was healthy.

 

 We absolutely love the connection your photo makes with an audience. How did you come up with that winking photo? 

Dane's Response:Its my personality to be funny and different. I was just trying the drink and it was amazing!!!

 

 What is one of your favorite ingredients to cook with and why? 

Dane's Response: One of my favorite ingredients to use is chocolate chips because it makes everything taste way better, such as banana bread, cookies and pancakes.

 

 Why do you think it’s important for kids to get involved in the kitchen? 

Dane's Response:I think it’s good for kids to cook because it gives them independence if they can make their own lunches and it gives their mom a break!

 

 What advice would you give to young or aspiring chefs?

Dane's Response: Cook food so you can try new things! Always take one bite, even if you dont think youll like something.

 

 If you could have any cooking superpower, what would it be and why? 

Dane's Response:To be able to move my hands really fast so I could chop, whisk and stir really fast!

 

What's a favorite food pun or joke of yours? No joke can be too cheesy for us ;)

Dane's Response: Why did the duck go into the pantry? To grab a pack of "quackers!"

 

 "If you could be any fruit or vegetable, what would you be and why?"

Dane's Response: I would be a cumquat because they taste terrible, so nobody would want to eat me and I would live forever!!
