Culinary Passion at The Boulevard

Category: Culinary

Author: Shawn Coffel, Culinary Director

For numerous chefs, there exists a pivotal cookbook that served as the catalyst for their culinary journey. This single book ignited an idea, unlocking a passion for cooking they may not have realized they possessed. Cookbooks transcend mere collections of recipes; they serve as windows into cultures, histories, and personal narratives. With each page turn, a new adventure, tradition, or innovative technique unfolds.

Every recipe and cookbook, whether passed down through generations or reimagined, enriches our culinary culture at The Boulevard Senior Living – St. Peters. Exploring culinary resources nurtures and evolves our love for food and cooking.

I own about 125 books in my current cookbook collection. Among them, my favorites are Pok Pok and Momofuku. What I love most about these cookbooks is my passion for Asian food.

To capture my interest, a cookbook must allow me to envision the finished dish and adjust ingredients to personalize the recipe.

I haven’t received any recipes passed down to me yet. My mom holds onto my grandmother’s recipes, and I’m not seeking them out now. I want Momma to be around for a long time. One of my favorite recipes that I’ve developed is seafood japchae.

Generational recipes or new culinary creations can spark nostalgia and inspire our cooking journey. Whether you’re a seasoned chef or a home cook, we all have that one foolproof recipe. Don’t overlook the power of beloved cookbooks and their stories. Keep sharing and savoring the diverse flavors that await us.
