Amateur Home Cook, turned Professional Chef, turned Food Blogger
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.
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.
While my day to day passion does involve creating recipes for this website, I am a wine distributor first. Not only does it pays the bills, but also gives me a creative outlet to work with restaurants on a day to day basis.
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.
Life Motto: Cook with passion, savor good food, and love great company. Cheers!
