My mom encouraged me at an early age to help her in the kitchen. When I was little, I got the less-than-glamorous jobs like peeling potatoes and chopping onions, particularly around the Thanksgiving holiday when we often would host the entire extended family.
Over time, I have learned a few new techniques of my own, tested some adventurous recipes, and now find myself constantly searching for the latest local restaurant openings, food blogs and cookbooks. Every time I cook, I channel my mom's passion and spontaneity in the kitchen, as well as my dad's love of high-quality wine.
I am very lucky to have a husband and nearby friends who love to eat as much as I do - and a dog Toni who loves the scraps!
