From a young age, I always found myself in the kitchen, If I couldn’t sleep I would pull pots out, sit on my kitchen floor and pretend like I was cooking. Little did I know it would turn into a passion I push myself to learn about every day. After Business school, I attended the Culinary Institute of America to hone my skills. Since then I have experimented with flavors trying to push the limit by mixing ingredients you’d never expect. Some combinations work, while others are concoctions I’ve noted to never do again. “No one is born a great cook, one learns by doing” – Julia Childs. Education never ends & that’s my favorite part of cooking.
