I graduated from the University of Massachusetts in May of 2007 with a Hospitality and Tourism degree. UMASS is where I first started cooking, entertaining and really and enjoying it. I took all of the food and beverage classes where I got to learn my basic cooking skills and food safety. When graduation time came I was thinking about enrolling in Le Cordon Bleu but a family friend introduced me to a wonderful company where I have been lucky enough to be going on 5 years there.
I wouldn't trade how things ended up but I keep finding myself wanting to learn more and try new things in the kitchen. With this blog I hope to share some new recipes, foods, techniques, and of course restaurants!
Below are just a few snapshots of my kitchen. I love all the counter space I have for prep and the granite is such a great stone!
A Kitchen Aid stand mixer is worth the $!!
I like to fill the empty jars on the right with different pastas when I have them
Love my double drawer freezer!!
