Suvir and Charlie introduced me to Sally Longo. She is a generous, elegant, very independent and food-loving person. On air she shares her wealth of knowledge (she is clever!) with her audience, and you can tell how much she enjoys what she is doing. Sally can be a mother or mentor figure to anyone and she is willing to take people under her wings. I am so glad that our paths crossed at American Masala Farm and am looking forward to many more fun and delicious times with sally.

Whether helping cater events in our home, chatting between video segments on her hit show Dinner at 8, working side by side at charity events, sampling local restaurants (we need to do a review column), or just kicking back for a laugh and a glass - Sally Longo is a dear friend! But, when she and Suvir are in the kitchen to make dumplings together my sweet nature takes a back seat and my inner b*tch comes out... "Hurry up, can't you see I'm hungy?, How much longer? Is that all you made, or are there more? What you wanted thirds too, pity!" They rock, the dumplings rock, and the sauce ain't bad either! I would ask you all to come over, but well, read the above!

Everyone should have a Sally Longo in their life.
She's the definition of "a friend in need is a friend indeed" with a generosity of self possessed by few. Thanks, Sally, for being there for all of us. You're a love and we love you for it.


I LOVE Dinner at 8, and Sally Longo's cookbook. Always get great ideas from both. These dumplings look absolutely Divine. You're right, Suvir. Good dumplings require talent and patience, which Sally has much of. She has a heart of gold and is a genuine human being. Her show should be syndicated!

Thanks to you and Charlie, I experienced a wonderful taste of the Adirondacks (with a hint of masala, bien sur), but I am also grateful for you two introducing me to Sally, who is exactly as you say--a warm and generous friend. Someone with that much heart can only be delightful in the kitchen as well.
Those dumplings look amazing--so sweet and pretty. I can't wait for the next cookbook. Until then, I will try Sally's recipe in her wonderful book of Adirondack treasures. OR...I might just have to hop on a plane and get back to the farm.
