Gila means happiness. Hava nagila (as in the celebrated song) means let’s rejoice. To me, happiness and celebration are all about food – on the special occasions, but even more I would argue, on any random Tuesday. My happiest state is achieved by nourishing my body with healthful and tasty foods. This site is about helping you achieve happiness with and through food. I hope you’ll use my pantry as a reference guide for products and sites you can use at home as you cook your way to happy and healthy, and visit my menu of services for ways I may be able to help you in more hands-on applications as you find yourself looking to food as a means of nourishment and celebration.
