6 Questions With Deana Saukam

What’s your favorite food you have to convince people to try?

Uni – sea urchin. Most people I know are huge fans, but every now and then I’ll meet someone who’s never had it and they’re a little uneasy but they usually all come around. 🙂

What do you think is the closest thing to real magic?

Kittens. The perfect bite. Afternoon naps. Falling asleep on one side of the world and waking up on the other side. Pizza in a bathtub. The way a person’s face lights up when you show them something they’ve never experienced before and they love it – love at first sight. Ranch Dressing. Cool Ranch Doritos. Spotify premium. Making new friends.

If you could choose a BFF from any era (dead or alive!) who would it be and why?

All of the BFFs I have now! I can’t live without them and no one I know dead or alive would accept me and my shenanigans into their hearts like my current BFFs already do. 🙂

Who’s been the biggest influence/guiding force behind what you do?

My friends, family and food.

What’s your favorite go-to comfort food?

NOODLES. In any way, shape, form or sauce.

What’s your favorite smell in the whole wide world?

Garlic hitting a sizzling, hot pan in my mother’s kitchen.
