Cooking is my outlet. I love the creative process of integrating complimentary flavors and ingredients and the result being a dish I can only describe as culinary magic. Since I can remember, I’ve been in the kitchen. The fondest memories of my beloved grandmother Corina, are food-centered whether helping with Sunday dinner and holiday meals or watching Julia Roberts and Jacques Pepin. I feel closer to her each time I’m in the kitchen with my daughter. sees
