Cooking and eating good food has always been a huge part of my life.  I started learning at a young age from my grandmother.  I feel so fortunate to have had the chance to learn professionally from great chef instructors like Chef Barbara Alexander.  For me, cooking is a satisfying and creative way of bringing friends and family together.
