Amateur Home Cook turned Professional Chef turned Food Blogger

Dash of Savory

I’m a born and raised Alaskan girl in seek of all things food and wine. I’m fascinated, hungry and a little obsessed.

While attending Business school at the University of Montana, I found myself always turning to cooking rather than my studies. Whether it involved coming up with a late night snack or creating and plating an elegant meal just to photograph, I became consumed.

A revelation happened to me, cooking became a part of me while business school took a dramatic halt in my life and it took me 3 years to gain the courage to pursue my dreams.

Le Cordon Bleu

So I moved my life to a place where food is king and wine is queen; the beautiful Bay Area in Northern California. Immediately I enrolled myself in Le Cordon Bleu in San Francisco and spent a year learning, loving and working towards my new found life as a chef.

After 5 years of living the wine and dine life in California, my husband and myself have settled down in Big Sky Country. Missoula, Montana is home, it’s where we plan to raise a family, expand my blog, and stay hungry for new opportunities. I love sharing my passion of food and wine with everyone I encounter and look forward to sharing our life here in Montana with all.

My cooking style is comforting on all levels with fresh ingredient flares. I want to truly inspire people with my food. I celebrate food and its art. I focus on restaurant quality food and sharing my tips and tricks with even the most amateur cook.

Cook with passion, savor good food, and love great company. Cheers!

    How awesome! It really is inspiring, thank you for sharing your story. I grew up in the Bay Area but food was never a real passion of mine. I always watched Food Network growing up but never cooked anything until college (when I was forced to). I went to UCSD to study Biochemistry thinking I would be a doctor or something in the health field, but turned out, similarly to you, I would always turn to food and cooking instead of studying. Now haha although I haven’t gone to culinary school, I’m working my way up and trying to weasel my way into the food industry! We’ll see where life takes me.

    Thank you for sharing your story and food with us. Keep pursuing your dreams and I will too!

    Although I have not pursued culinary school like yourself I am fascinated, hungry and a little obsessed (okay a lot obsessed with food and the culinary world). I love learning about it, talking about it, and most of all cooking & sharing those meals with people. I look forward to following your site!
