My cooking is indebted to the ever-changing seasons. I love being inspired by the time of the year so that whenever I cook, I am using fruits and vegetables that are at the peak of their flavor. I love how cooking allows my creativity to run wild; a few simple ingredients can be turned into a meal that has the potential to express love, spark a memory, or set the stage for a lovely gathering. This site is a place where I want to explore all aspects of food; I want not only to create, but also to learn. I want to explore food in a way that is not simply limited to what we consume. Each dish has a story of its own, and here I want to share my stories with you.
