Food, cooking help Joplin native achieve Broadway dream | Local News

When Lisa Adams was growing up in Joplin, she was that do-it-all theater girl.

In her own words, she’d be in a production at Joplin Little Theatre while at the same time rehearsing for a show at the Carthage Music and Theatre Club, now Stone’s Throw Dinner Theatre, even as she starred in a musical at McAuley Catholic High School, where she went to school.

Adams had dreams of performing on the big stages in New York City, and she almost made it. She was destined for Broadway, but it didn’t happen the way she expected.

After more than 20 years as a personal chef for celebrities and people just looking for help living busy lives in the Big Apple, Adams got the opportunity of a lifetime earlier this year when she interviewed to be a food consultant and food provider for a new Broadway play that opened in November

COMMENTARY, Dec 31 – Food is a personal journey. This is what 2021 tasted like, for me.

During the first part of the year, when the lockdown was still in place, many of us got used to cooking or ordering a meal for one.

Cooking up food and identity in Pailin Chongchitnant’s “Hot Thai Kitchen”

For more than 12 years, Pailin Chongchitnant has hosted the YouTube cooking show Hot Thai Kitchen. Chongchitnant’s recipes (of which there are hundreds, free to access online) aim to offer a deeper understanding of the steps and the ingredients that make Thai cuisine so distinct. They also highlight the cultural background of each dish; from steaming bowls of tom kha gai to crispy coconut corn fritters, Chongchitnant weaves stories from her own life and childhood into each video. (My personal favorite is her recipe for instant pot massaman curry; the freshly toasted warm spices and rich curry is more soul-nourishing and flavorful than any bowl I’ve had at a restaurant).

And the videos are resonating widely; the channel has more than 1.4 million subscribers worldwide. Chongchitnant’s cookbook, Hot Thai Kitchen: Demystifying Thai Cuisine with Authentic Recipes to Make at Home, was published in 2016.
