PCC Podcasts: Chef Olaiya Land, salt tooth, fan of rustic cooking and PCC Cooks instructor
I first met Chef Olaiya Land at her PCC Cooks Autumn Soup Making class at PCC Greenlake. She taught us how to properly (and speedily) chop an onion. She taught us how to build layers of flavor within our soups. She taught us how our pantries already hold many of the ingredients we'd need to create simple, elegant garnishes that can elevate our creations from great to sublime. Delish!

I hope you'll enjoy getting to know her and her passion for food and cooking as much as I have. I especially enjoyed her salt and cookbook recommendations, her stories of cooking with her grandmother growing up in Illinois and why so many of us could benefit from a knife skills class.
