About

Years ago I realized that with some inspiration & experimentation I could create my favorite dishes exactly the way I wanted them. Cooking and baking have always been my passion. I’ve made and remade recipes from around the globe—so much so that I began to have a little problem organizing all these tiny scraps of paper floating all over my house.

Please join me in creating these dishes I put so much love into. I made these all with the intent of feeding the people I love most—my family.

I’m a Southern California native who grew up eating from the most diverse palette in the United States. Within a five mile radius we have the best of whatever cuisine you crave—from Vietnamese, American, Mexican, Indian to Armenian. Exploring the cuisines of the world in my own backyard is reflected in much of what I make.
