It was then that I was introduced to a deep appreciation for the power and pleasure of great meals. I began my career at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. followed by a fellowship at the Guggenheim Museum in Venice, Italy. I eventually returned to the United States and after working as an attorney for five years, decided to revisit my roots and become a chef instead. I attended Kendall College in Chicago and havr since worked with nationally renowned chefs Gene Kato of Japonais, James Beard, and award-winning Tony Mantuano of Spiaggia. In 2006, I joined Sara Lee Food & Beverage as a chef, appearing on morning news and talk shows across the country. I'm excited to share some of my favorite recipes with the BakeSpace community!
