National Celery Month; Chef Gabrielle Hamilton

Chef Gabrielle Hamilton
Gabrielle Hamilton is the chef-owner of Prune in NYC, and wrote the memoir, Blood, Bones, and Butter (which Anthony Bourdain said was “simply the best memoir by a chef ever”). In 2011, she received the James Beard Foundation’s award for Best Chef in New York City. Her French mother taught her to cook and love food.

I would rather use those than parsley in most dishes. And one of the best Thanksgiving smells is the celery and onion, cooking in a little butter, for the stuffing...
