LN Spotlight: Addie Gundry
Where do you live? But, most importantly, we have a baby on the way! What do you do professionally? I am a chef and writer, culinary entertainer of sorts. I have a very unique job and dabble in all things food!
Here's what she cooks to honor her grandparents' Minnesota roots. Chef Addie Gundry didn't follow a very traditional path from childhood into the culinary world. But Addie knew, with the deep conviction of a year-old, that the lovely lifestyle she had read about in foodie magazines was the one for her. It was a contrast to her unsettled childhood — her parents divorced when she was young and she was frequently uprooted for moves to new cities before being placed in boarding school. She didn't have the cooking-at-Mom's-knee upbringing that many professional chefs recall fondly, because Mom didn't cook.
