About me

Occupation Writer/Editor
Location Takoma Park, Maryland, United States
Introduction "Like other forms of human affection, cooking delivers its truest and most enduring gifts when it is savored in intimacy -- prepared not by a chef but by a cook and with love." -- Marcella Hazan. This is how I feel about cooking and it's why I created this website. I'm not a chef but I cook as an act of giving -- to myself and to those I love. I also cook for the same reason I travel -- to experience the thrill of discovering something new and adopting it as my own. My table is informal -- paper napkins, mismatched forks, plates, and cups. What's essential is savoring something made by hand and from the heart. Come sit with me and enjoy!
