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

It's been as long as I can remember. More about the eating of food than the cooking of it, I want to try things that i could not, would not cook. I like to photograph food.... That being said, I have taken several cooking courses in Italy, in Campania, Sicily and le Marche and absolutely loved the cameraderie of people from all walks of life working towards a common goal and then devouring it!


I live to eat and drink (and enjoy cooking when I have time). I am pretty adventurous and love to try new combinations of flavors. I will go out of my way to make a pilgrimage to an interesting restaurant, winery, architectural curiosity or garden.
