I love people and I love food. Put them together and you get a Jittery Cook jabbering with everyone she meets, grabbing their food thoughts. Inspired by the engaging style of Humans of New York, Jittery Jabber will be gathering your food stories. What’s yours?
"I cook a lot of West Indian food; curry, callaloo. I'm from Trinidad. We learn to cook really early."
“I make fried eggs.”
“J’aime manger les oranges et les sandwiches.”
“I used to do a lot of traveling and I would go into the kitchen and ask them how you make this and how you make that. The most interesting one was to learn to make peanut chicken, in Africa.”
“Adding cheese makes everything better.”
“Eat good foods, eat healthy. That’s the best thing you can do for yourself. I’m trying to play hockey and I like to eat well. It helps your training. It helps you live better.”
“For me the best thing about food is making it for others and watching them eat it.”
“I don’t even think about food.”
One time I dropped a Starbucks wrap out of my pocket on Delancey and Allen and it got run over but I went back and found it and ate it. It wasn’t dirty, just flattened.
Jittery Jabber - bringing you people and their food stories.
“Prohibition, it’s in midtown in Miami. I went there a couple of months ago. They serve everything in big dishes to share. What is that? Like à la carte? And, they have the most amazing lobster macaroni. The wine was amazing. The scenery was really, really serene. It was really nice. And the food was just amazing. I loved it. It was a great experience. I can’t wait to get back down there.”
“The restaurant here is actually very good. I had a kale salad. And it was very fresh and delicious. The sangria here is very nice. It’s very refreshing. It’s white wine sangria with fresh apple chunks, very nice. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.”
“I work at a restaurant and my guilty pleasure is walking by our Caesar salad table - do not disclose which restaurant I work at - grabbing a crouton and dipping it in the salad dressing dressing. I can’t stop myself.”
