And she chan­nels that creativ­ity in her own kitchen by adding sim­ple yet un­ex­pected el­e­ments to her go-to meals. “The re­sults of my ef­forts are fla­vor-packed dishes that are ac­ces­si­ble and de­li­cious; a hint of the fa­mil­iar, but def­i­nitely not the same-old, skipping-record reper­toire,” says Gail.
