When are you wise? How do you become it and what does it actually do for you? In the TV program ‘On the Way to Wisdom’ of Omroep Gelderland I went looking for answers to those questions.

I walked the Walk of Wisdom in nine stages and each time a well-known Gelderlander walked with me. I spoke with them about their lives and work, the way they have developed and the wisdom they have gained over the years.

In the second episode, which aired on January 17, cookbook author and TV chef Nadia Zerouali is my hiking companion. Along the way, Nadia tells what she has learned from the dishes and the stories of older Moroccan women. She feels 100 percent Winterswijk and 100 percent Moroccan and is convinced that food can connect people.

Nadia lost her husband when their son was 3 months old. Yet she has learned that in grief there is also beauty, strength and wisdom.
