Name at least three of your favorite cuisines

Cuban, Italian, Mexican

What is your favorite vacation spot?


Describe the most memorable meal you've ever had

Well, I've had a lot of memorable meals, but the most recent was at Le Pigeon in Portland, OR. A truffle risotto appetizer (to-DIE-for), venison tenderloin with purple brussel sprouts and foie gras profiteroles with caramel sauce and sea salt.

What is your cooking level? Beginner, intermediate, advanced, professional, etc... and which type of cuisine is your specialty?

Intermediate - I guess Cuban is the closest I come to specialty. I'm always trying to learn new styles and cuisines.

Please tell the group a little bit about your interest in food and cooking

Growing up, I watched my grandmother cook with awe and admiration. No measurements, no "technique" per se, but a whole lot of heart. I hope to pass that on to my friends and family now.


Hi there. Cooking has become such a great hobby for me. Can't wait to learn more.
