Hello Chefs and Foodies!
Although I have a background in professional cooking...graduated from the Connecticut Culinary Institute in 1999 and cooked in restaurants for 7 years...I am joining for the comunity and company here. I started out at a cold station cook, then worked my way to grill and then to saucier. I left the business (Amen!) when I married and started a family. Although I still love food and flavors, I'll never go back to the business. As a mom, there's no room in my life for it, nor would I trade an evening playing with my kids or helping them do homework for the restaurant life again. But I am looking forward to chilling and talking about and sharing food stories and recipes with the members here!
