Turn Basic Ingredients Into Exciting Meals w/ Gaby Dalkin

Most of us have been spending more time in the kitchen lately because we sort of have to. Today we’re talking with Gaby Dalkin from What’s Gaby Cooking about making cooking more approachable and fun during quarantine. We also do a fun fire round where Gaby puts together delicious meals featuring random ingredients you all submitted to us on IG! 

Gaby Dalkin (@whatsgabycookin) is a trained chef, recipe developer, entrepreneur and food/lifestyle writer based in Los Angeles. Her blog,, features original recipes and images along with highlights from Gaby’s life and travels. In April 2020, Gaby released her third cookbook, What’s Gaby Cooking: Eat What You Want: 125 Recipes for Real Life. The book reflects Gaby’s approach to balancing moderation and indulgence, while inviting readers to let go of rules and restrictions and simply enjoy good food.
