My Dinner Party Corner

Why I want to be mentor in this category:
I have been a resource for lots of my friends who are intimidated in the kitchen and insecure. I like to demystify food and make it fun for people to cook and enjoy the fruits of their labors.

What inspires me in this category:
Food is the great equalizer and always gets people talking.

I've been cooking for over 30 years, since I was in elementary school. I will try anything and over the years have tackled culinary projects that now amaze me. I'm a big believer in improvising and can turn just about any kitchen disaster around.

Biggest Lesson Learned:
Don't be intimidated by long recipes or complicated instructions, they are usually not that tricky and remember, you didn't always know how to drive a car. Anyone can learn.

Books, classes, teachers that have helped me:
All of the above: books, classes, teachers, chef and restaurateur friends.

Education, Awards, Pro Experience:
34 years of cooking and lots of classes.
