AKA MY HAPPY PLACE

personal chef, dog lover, cookie fanatic

My approach to food and cooking is focused on two words -- simple and delicious. I believe that real food is medicine, and try to eat organic, whole foods; keyword try, because while I'm thoughtful about what I eat (mostly plants, lots of fresh herbs, beans and grains) I'm also realistic.  I seriously can't imagine a life without chocolate chip cookies, so I bake them and eat them... just not everyday! 

This mindfulness about food started over 20 years ago when my brother was diagnosed with cancer. To say Shelly's diagnosis was overwhelming is an understatement; it turned my world upside down and left me searching for order in the chaos. On top of that, I was turning 30 and was not in great physical shape. Somehow, it occurred to me that the only thing I could control was what I ate. I began collecting cookbooks and filling binders with recipes I'd rip from magazines. I obsessed over full flavored, seasonal menus, ethnic seasonings, and new techniques. I took every cooking class possible and completed the Professional Baking Series at The New School of Cooking. I'd invite friends over because I just couldn't eat everything I made! My relationship to food was forever changed, and along the way, I even lost 40 pounds. Ultimately, I found my calling, and realized that my happy place is in the kitchen, and that for me, sharing food is sharing love.

I've had many jobs  (feature film development, magazine publishing, managing a newsstand) but nothing has been as deeply, soulfully satisfying as cooking. They say that when you love what you do, you never work a day in your life, and they're right. 

I look forward to cooking for you and your family (and yes, I promise to bring you cookies...)
