My imagination is stirred by: My travels and trying new foods and dishes
If you could cook for anyone… I would cook for Tina Fey, because she is brilliant and I would love to meet her. I would probably bake her a chocolate babka – you just can’t go wrong with that; one of my faves.
If your kitchen could talk, what would it say? “Can I have a day off?”
This week I’m cooking for: My sisters – lucky for me they live in NYC.
Studying at Le Cordon Bleu in London taught me: Technique and the basics of classic French cuisine.
Favorite place ever traveled: India, Thailand, Vietnam and Prague. I fell in love with those countries, cultures and the foods that I tried while traveling there.
Watching the Food Network taught me: That I loved it so much it was the career that I wanted to pursue.
In your search of amazing ethnic cuisine, what has surprised you the most: How many cuisines there are that I’ve never tried before, and how much I love them!
My TOP 5 Meals
My motto in life is: You only live once! Take advantage of every opportunity and go forward with all that you have.
