In 2014, I started DINE ON IN! as a simple blog full of nutrient rich recipes that I have crafted over my 10-year career as a restaurant/catering chef.
I have always been behind sustainable practices that keep communities close.
As a chef, we are taught different ways to cook something, so we are constantly at work manipulating the process, gaining more knowledge pushing boundaries and testing limits within yourself and learning more about the craft.
As a mother, and woman, I celebrate the work of local farmers and purveyors in my dishes. I enjoy teaching wellness classes to communities. I love to educate my neighbors about sustainability and zero waste practices that one can adapt at home. I want you to care about the choices you make when cooking. I want to show you ways of being thoughtful and pragmatic about your approach to food, because it is such a sacred luxury in today’s world.
My roots are based in community engagement, and public health, so I am constantly looking for ways to help another.
When you take time to understand where food is sourced it becomes respected, attainable, sustainable, and delicious.
So what are YOU waiting for?
Put down what you think you know about food and take a journey with me and let’s COOK. EAT. MINGLE.
