About

My first cooking class at the age of 49

I’m an alumni relations and communications guru by day and a chef-wannabe in a midlife “foodie” crisis during the rest of my waking moments (which are many.)  My shopping excursions have gone from JCrew to Williams and Sonoma. My kitchen tool box includes a mandoline, a torch and a muddler. My reading lists revolve around food. My website favorites revolve around food. I’m not the dictionary version of a foodaholic – it’s not about overconsumption, but appropriate-consumption. I fight my own Cupcake Wars. I can’t follow a recipe verbatim. I’m an adhoc cook. I’m a moody foodie. I’m loving every minute of it.
