Lauren Grant is a Des Moines food writer and culinary scientist whose recipes are informed by her experiences living with an eating disorder. She let me step into her kitchen and chat with her for this brief documentary entitled "Zest."
She's learned to reimagine what food means to her, with an emphasis on seasonality and the sense of community and culture that food can inspire. She shares her creations on her food journal, The Zestful Kitchen (ZestfulKitchen.com).
