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

I am probably and intermediate to advanced cook. I attended the Culinary School for 8 months in Pasadena for fun. I enjoy braising and creating differenct types of sauces and marinades.

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

I love food - shopping at the farmers market for the freshest seasonal items. I love to experiment with new dishes, I try to replicate things I tried at restuarnts or see at places like Whole Foods. Yum to all that is made with care and passion!


I love all types of foods and what better way to meet new people than sharing a common interest. Dim Sum is wonderful, especially when shared with a large number of people. Look forward to meeting everyone.
