Hi, my name is Laura Martinetti and I am a food blogger. I worked 10-12 hour days at my job and I was known as the takeout queen, by everyone who knew me, because cooking wasn’t really a priority to me in those days. In 2008, I was hospitalized for high blood pressure. During my two weeks there, I watched the cooking shows on Food Network and became fascinated by their techniques, such as knife cuts, etc. It unlocked a passion in me that I never knew I had and I began the most beautiful journey of my life!
I began to travel to different cities and states to see what the culinary landscape was there…what cuisine was hot and why? I wanted to know how to take the takeout dishes that we enjoy and make a simplified version at home and make it colorful and healthier meal. Takeout always has a place in our lives, but it will never be made the way we can make it at home with fresh, local ingredients.
In a world where food is mass produced and technology produces food faster for the cheapest amount of money, I want to bring people back into their kitchens. Let us create memories with our friends and families by cooking healthier meals with them. Cooking is an expression of love and what is better than that? Color your takeout with love.
