Hometown: New Orleans

I love food & grew up w/Lebanese, Cajun, Mexican and French food, then learned to cook a wide range of cuisines. I was a professional French chef for 3 years and a caterer for 5 years. My great joy is reading about food including cookbooks-old & new.
M.F.K. Fisher reigns supreme. Waverly Root as well. Let me think about #3. (And Gordon Ramsey on TV is one of my guilty pleasures.)
Cooking for friends one of my greatest delights--happy to cook really simple or vegetarian, vegan, Italian, Chinese, Indian as well as the foods of my own cultures. I also love WINE! Home alone-dinners run more to good salads with a hunk of cheese.

I was born and grew up in New Orleans but lived most of my life away from the city. Now I am back and excited about meeting new people, exploring new ideas, building on my passions for reading, food, the arts, the outdoors, and life in general.
