About Me:

Committed Locavore
Committed Locavore
I have been cooking since I was a kid, and have been a professional chef for the last 10 years. I trained for 6 years under the amazing Lucia Watson, and I have to give her a shout out because she really instilled in me a deep and abiding love of seasonal, local and sustainable eating. This is me outside our house with the latest haul from our garden!
Appreciating the sensual nature of food
I believe that food is sexy and that cooking can be a wonderfully sensual process, from appreciating the beauty of a perfectly ripe tomato to the "mouthgasm" that happens when you have something that hits your mouth in all the right places! I also love to take pictures of myself with food. Nothing wrong with a little food porn, right?

No messin' around
No messin' around
I am a big believer in having fun while I cook, but I do have specific processes and rituals around how I mentally and physically prepare myself and my space-- from what music I listen to, to pre-cleaning the kitchen so I can have a clean slate when I start cooking....I think of this whole process as "kitchen foreplay"-- I am warming both myself and the kitchen up for all the action to come! Take that, dirty surfaces!
Community
I take my friends seriously. Community Cooking is only as strong as its attendants, so I am always filled with gratitude for all the folks who show up, week after week, ready to cook and have fun working together....go Team Awesome! This website is dedicated to all of you. xoxoxoox
