While girls my age dreamt of becoming ballerinas and princesses, five year old me knew I was going to be a chef. I was resolute as a child, but wavered as a young adult, only to return on my original path after trying my hand at other career options.
Although I cook daily for a living, I still enjoy sitting down to a home-cooked meal. In fact, there is nothing more that I love than to walk into my kitchen, open the cupboards, and to think about all the possibilities! My passion stems from the beautiful local and seasonal produce that abound, and I would love nothing more than to share this love with you.
I am a (sometime lapsed) vegetarian, so most of the recipes I post will be veggie-friendly. While all foods, including meats, follow a seasonal cycle, fruits and vegetables are those most visibly affected by the turning calendar. They are also the foods that pose the most problems even to experienced cooks: we all know what to do with tomatoes, but what about kohlrabi?!?!?! I hope this blog will show you the wonders of rutabaga, and guide you through the seasons.
