Hi, I'm Pam Smith

Pam SmithThe idea behind THE TWISTED FORK is to create a place to share my passion for cooking, entertaining and photography. The inspiration comes from my love of food and my quest to create new flavors to share with others. Julia Child once said "cooking is one failure after another and that's how you finally learn." My mission is to help create that passion within you to be able to create flavorful dishes without fear of failure. ~Pam Happily married to Peter. Two children, Taryn and Alex.

It Takes a Village

They always say it takes a village.  Or maybe it’s a group.  It could just be fate.  But I think it really is a community that cares and wants to see people grow.   Many days, I stand in my kitchen alone.  It’s okay because I like to feel the love that moves from my … Read more

My Wish for Your Wedding Reception

I’ve been to several weddings over my lifetime. They have varied with budget and locations to eras and style. I have been to large weddings, over the top, intimate and styled. The one constant in all of these have been food. Yes, everyone wants to eat, and apparently, wants to eat well. I went to … Read more

Living the Dream

Last week we went to the U.S. Open. It was a dream of my husband’s and although I like golf I think I could have lived without it. The deal was, however, that we would go into East Hampton the next day and hopefully run into Ina Garten. How could I pass up a deal … Read more

Love Was In The Air

Sometimes, like this past week, you watch true love in action. The royal couple put on a splendid wedding that didn’t disappoint. Other times, something more subtle might come along, albeit with the same level of love and passion. The only difference is, the entire world doesn’t get to view it. I’m talking about the … Read more

Holidays are coming!

My First Mushroom

Someone asked me today what got me started in my business; where did this passion come from?  I had to sit back a minute and think about it.  After all, I’ve been doing it for such a long time that I feel it was always there, but there is always a beginning to every story, … Read more

Bah Humbug

Christmas will be here in one week.  I’m sure for many of you it’s panic time.  You still have shopping to do or dinner plans to make, wrapping gifts or just trying to squeeze in all the friends and family time.  I’m usually there with you..  but not this year.  This year brings a feeling … Read more

Candied Bacon

We all know the food groups that were part of our learning as we were growing up.  Vegetables and Fruit, Grains and Cereals, Protein, Milk and Dairy and Sugars and Fats.  No where in that learning did we cover the sixth and barely known food group… Bacon.  People of the world…wake up!  Bacon is not a new … Read more

Garlic Shrimp

When I go to a restaurant I am my husband’s – and probably the wait staff’s – worst nightmare.  I must have it my way.  A little of this and a little of that.  If I could take a bit from each entrée it would be perfect because it seems there is always something I don’t … Read more

Split Pea Soup, Split Decision

When it comes to the standard way of making things, or trying something new, my husband and I are typically at odds.  For Peter, lobster has to be served steamed in a shell, shrimp can be with a cocktail sauce or in scampi.  You can’t have pizza with goat cheese and you certainly can’t have … Read more
