From baking pies to making “angry” pasta through depression and heartbreak, Gabi explores the therapeutic benefits of getting your hands dirty in the kitchen. Life is messy and it’s hard to be truly prepared, but there is no problem from which you can’t cook your way out. Gabi’s show demonstrates how the process can be heartening, hilarious, and fun. It’s one-part live cooking show and one-part interview injected with as much comedy and heart as possible.
