Thanks for visiting. I'm a southern California native with a passion for all things culinary. I'm a trained chef, but consider myself a lifelong learner. This curiosity guides my passion for cooking, baking, recipe development, and culinary storytelling. Julia Child had it right when she said that "you'll never know everything about anything, especially something you love." In this space, I'll share what I've learned along the journey so far and what I'm exploring currently.
