What is your favorite meal that unlocks pleasant memories of the past? How does food help you to connect deeper with others? How do you blow up your life on purpose to chase the dreams that matter to you? These are three powerful questions I explore in this interview with Marissa Stevens, “the cook, writer, and photographer/videographer behind Pinch and Swirl.” Marissa shares her fundamental belief that the best food happens at home and the stories that have shaped her experiences in the kitchen and around the world. We also talk about the language of food, the evolution of Pinch and Swirl from hobby to business, discovering and developing skills by pushing beyond her comfort zone, and getting through the fears of going all in on her creative pursuit.
