Based out of Philadelphia but an avid traveler that uses fresh, seasonal and local ingredients to improve the quality of life through sustainable research and community involvement.
I am actually Pennsylvania Dutch and have been cooking ever since I could reach the counter top. It is my passion. I am able to impact people's lives through food and support my community. Cooking is very therapeutic and allows me to be creative.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
First, we will create a goal or vision of the lesson by understanding how well educated they are about the topic and especially what their dietary restrictions, allergies and special accomodations are. Then we will organize the important details and apply that to hands on activites. Afterwards we will reflect on what we have learned and then create new ideas for future endeavors.
