San Francisco, CA


I've lived in Colorado, Washington, Colombia, London and now call San Francisco my home.

I have travelled to dozens of countries and always stay in family homes where the kitchen is the center of the action. I've picked up tips and tricks from Italian grandmothers, Serbian foodies and Nicaraguan nannies, but whenever I am a guest in someone's home, I always offer to cook for them.

The most enjoyable meals I've ever eaten were not the most expensive, extravagant or 'unique'. They were messy. My favorite dinner parties are ones where everyone is in and out of the kitchen, picking off each other's plates and talking about things besides just the food.

I truly believe sharing meals can save the planet and almost anything tastes better with a healthy dollop of silliness. I'm on a mission to help foodies take themselves a little less seriously.
