I’m a chef, a cook, a teacher, a mother, a biker, a tentative photographer, and a hopeful writer.
Food is a narrative. Whether you love cooking or dread it, if you cook from recipes or from memory, how we feed ourselves tells a story. While I’m a pastry chef by day, I cook at home for one every night, save for when I have guests, which is as often as possible. Here are some of my stories.

Because I believe everyone can cook. And every plate holds a story. Here is how it all began . . .
