I have always had a love for cooking and food. At first it became a hobby and then the culinary industry changed my life. I began to cook as a professional and less like a home cook. I gained much knowledge at the Le Cordon Bleu school which gave me the right tools to pursue my passion.
After working for hotels and restaurant I quit to have children, but during that time I wrote a cookbook called Wild Edibles. That’s were this blog came from. A lot of what I publish on this site is also whats in my book or from things I learned by attending culinary school or on the job. This blog allows me to have a creative outlet.
I have certifications through local and national health department agencies and The national Restaurant Association. Some many people ask me if I am going to start a restaurant. I always say no because I don’t think people know just what it takes to do that and how many hurdles you have to jump to open a place. Only 1 in 10 new restaurants will survive in the first year. Those are very scary statistics!
For now this blog will serve as a way to get my book out into the world and to share info with my readers!
