Sides & Dips


Laura The Gastronaut

Hi! Welcome to my blog!

My name is Laura. I am a home cook, science junkie, Julia Child fan, daydreamer, beach lover, breakfast aficionado, and major foodie. My goal is to encourage and inspire others to get into the kitchen and learn about cooking whether that be through Julia Child recipes, fun cooking challenges, or by cooking one of my recipes I discovered in my laboratory. For me, cooking is not just about eating the food. It's also about the techniques, the science, and the experience that gets you to that delicious end product. And then taking that food, sharing it with the ones you love, and creating lasting memories. As Julia once said, "This is my invariable advice to people: Learn how to cook- try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all have fun." Bon appétit! learn more →
