“Do you marinate a different way? Karmel says that “a lot of cooking is about tradition. Keep doing it the way your mom or dad did it if it tasted good.”

The article also features her Martini Shaker which was something she came up with when she working on her new book. She needed someplace to mix and shake the marinades and her Martini Shaker w/ Classic Cocktail Based Marinades was born!
