FOOD IS A FORM OF JOY + CREATIVITY

I love the way food connects people - the way it builds bridges between cultures, between communities. There is something magical about the smell of fresh-baked bread, something immediately homey about blue crabs soaked in butter.

COOK·ING (noun) 

A technical term meaning "to add heat". But in reality, it's the more subtle art of bringing people together around food. A simple act that brings people together and builds bridges between cultures.

MY COOKING PHILOSOPHY

Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty. Fresh ingredients make all the difference. Simple isn't bad. Eat what you love. Use herbs. Gather friends - food is made to be shared.

MY CHEF INSPIRATIONS

Julia Child is my all-time favorite. Her passion, her joy, her decision to pursue food even a bit later in life, and her patience with recipes inspires me on a daily basis. 

 
IT'S ABOUT SO MUCH MORE THAN FOOD...

It's about people. It’s about creativity and expressing that through the medium of food. It’s about creating moments to pause and be present in our overly digital-saturated world. It’s about the feeling you get - sitting cross-legged on the floor eating spaghetti on a Wednesday or munching on crackers and cheese on the beach or gathered around a fire pit with marshmallows and grandkids - whatever your experience, whatever your background, food brings healing and connection.
