For all of my foodies out there, you will absolutely love this 2-part series!
Nicole Dayani, founder of Nicole’s Kitchen, is a young woman with a passion for food — just peep her Instagram and your mouth will water. She really is so talented & I can’t wait to show you guys what she cooked up with me next week!
Before we get into our cooking lesson, I want you all to know Nicole a little better! Not only is she hilarious, but she’s so great about finding substitutions for you. AKA I have 800 allergies and she made a gluten-free & dairy-free menu just for me! How sweet is that?
So, without further adieu, here is part 1 with one of my favorite people to get in the kitchen with!
Give Me Mora x Nicole’s Kitchen Q&A:
1. 3 spices you can’t live without? Paprika, tumeric and saffron.
2. Favorite restaurant in LA and what do you order there? Koi! The wagu beef and crispy rice topped with avocado and truffle oil is a must.
3. Favorite food? Baguette with butter.
4. Best thing you’ve ever made? That’s hard! Kale and pea basmati brown rice.
5. What is your go-to meal when you’re in a rush? Chicken breast and avocado pesto. It’s easy and quick!
6. Favorite comfort food? Chicken parm. Hands down.
7.Favorite kitchen tool? Cutting board.
8. Do you consider yourself a cook or a baker? Cook for sure.
9. What is your favorite meal of the day? Dinner.
10. Favorite substitution to make your meal healthier? Cauliflower rice.
11. What relaxes you outside of the kitchen? Going to kitchen stores, farmer’s markets or any ethnic markets.
12. What culture do you think has the best cuisine?The Italian and Persian. I get inspired to do a lot of Italian-Persian fusion dishes like that.
13. Where has been your favorite place you’ve traveled thus far? Turkey. The people are friendly, the mosques are so beautiful, and you can just get lost in the city but still find your way. It’s a really sacred place.
14. If you could get on a plane tomorrow, where would you go? Morocco.
15. How can one do fine dining on a budget? And where in LA do you recommend for budget-friendly meals? You can save a lot of money by packing your meals at home, so I recommend doing that, and then give yourself one fancy meal out a week. I think that’s a good balance. If you’re in LA, definitely go to Da Pasquale for Italian, and also, Milo & Olive is great.
