“I have been blessed with my passion for life that I manifest through food, but to be able to absorb more I need to share some. I do that at my Chef’s Counter through my demonstrational and hands-on cooking classes. This gives me a chance to answer the complicated unknowns, and make cooking a joyful experience.”
