I grew up in
I have had a love affair with food from as early as I can remember, helping both my mother and grandmother in their kitchens. I began my culinary journey in earnest from the time I was 12 years-old. Whether I was wooing boyfriends or gathering friends and family around a dinner table, food has always been at the heart of all my relationships. Combined with my love of travel, I have gotten to play with (and eat, happily), from all of the major world cuisines. I love the tapestry of flavors and aromas in ethnic cooking and delight in creating unique fusions of my own.
Over the past 25 years, I have worked professionally in first class restaurants and bed & breakfasts' as both an executive chef and baker. I have a unique talent and a passion for both baking and cooking. My greatest challenge professionally has been the creation of imaginative menus and signature dishes that tantalize all the senses.
I love the diversity of events that cooking affords and have enjoyed catering weddings and special events of all sizes. I have taught cooking classes ranging from an intimate gathering of friends to large cooking demonstrations. I am always looking for something new and challenging to add to my repertoire, so if you don’t see what you’re looking for – please ask – I would be more than happy to create a one of a kind event for you or your organization.
My greatest satisfaction comes from making other people happy through my food. I look forward to working with you to design an event that is as special and unique as you are.
