Mom’s Green Spaghetti | Gastro Obscura

From Atlas Obscura.

For New York Times’ food reporter and cookbook author Priya Krishna, her love of food started young. It all began with a book and a recipe for “green spaghetti,” sparking the idea that a recipe was part of a mini-world to explore. With her mother’s help, green spaghetti came to life on the table—and piqued a lifelong interest in delving into how food can provide a family history through the lens of what we eat.

Gastro Obscura’s series Sparked explores how one special bite can change an entire life. In every episode, our diverse roster of rotating guests—featuring chefs, food historians, scientists, artists, and other industry professionals—will take us on a journey in their kitchens. They’ll each answer the same question: What “Spark Food” rewired your brain, showed you that food was more than fuel, and kick-started the journey to become who you are today? Dig in to see which dishes, ingredients, recipes, and places sparked path-shifting culinary revelations.
