Hard to believe we are at Episode #10 already of Fiddler’s Favorites...Given that it is a holiday time for many people, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy Passover and Happy Easter!
We are having a very special meal prepared for us by the wonderful Swiss Violinist (and Iron Chef) Rachel Kolly.
Rachel made her debut as a concerto soloist when she was only 12. She has performed with orchestras throughout the world and her discography includes solo and chamber works that have received many awards including the Best Classical Recording of the Year in the “Concerto Category” by the prestigious International Classical Music Awards.
Just this past December I had the great pleasure of spending time with Rachel at her home in Basel, Switzerland.
Here, Rachel is preparing her favorite recipes for Pesto and Lamb Sashimi. After you have enjoyed Rachel's beautifully prepared food you can also check out her "Bach A Day" series she has started since Quarantine!
