I was bitten by the culinary bug early in my life. My mother had gotten the flu when I was about 8 years old. Mom was instructed not to get out of bed for anything. Well with a house full of brothers and a father what was a girl supposed to do....COOK!! After cooking my first meal all day I loved watching my family enjoy what I had created for them. That is when I knew I wanted to be a chef. I graduated from Johnson and Wales University in 1991 and have worked in many different places from exclusive fine dining restaurants to a local tavern and presently at an off premise catering company. I still to this day have an unbridled passion for creating and cooking great tasting foods using simple flavors and uncomplicated processes. I am really excited to share my culinary knowledge with viewers like you who would like to learn new ways to create some of my favorites.
