I have been in the kitchen since I was a little girl. After attending the School of Hotel Administration at Cornell University, I knew food and cooking was in my blood. I have worked in many different kitchens, big and small, with an emphasis on quality and customer service. During a hiatus from the culinary world, I spent 7 years working for a software company as an instructor, curriculum developer and sales consultant (but of course, I still cooked for family and friends).
After having two children of my own, my style changed to what I describe as family cooking; cooking healthy food which is easy to prepare and always tasty. I remember seeing friends struggle with cooking and wanted to help them. That was about the time I decided to merge my past two careers and become a culinary instructor.
Since the inception of The Family Chef, I was also faced with the challenge of managing a special diet for my children (and even myself). Never wanting them to feel deprived, I became an expert in creating gluten-free dishes as well as understanding how to make substitutions for dairy and eggs.
