I am a classicly trained chef/baker/cake decorator, and truly enjoy being in the kitchen. I am a personal chef in the Metro Boston area and make housecalls on a weekly basis.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new things. I enjoy cooking anything flavorful and healthy, good and good for you. I'm not a fan of salty foods, bland foods, or boring dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma used to prepare her potato chocolate cake (a secret family recipe) in a particular bowl, a nice old fashioned wooden bowl. I have since inherited the bowl, and I prepare all my cakes in this wonderful, unique family heirloom.
My cooking triumphs
I make wedding cakes for brides on a budget, and have made it my job to cut costs without cutting quality for brides in need. I have managed to make cakes for as little as $85, a huge steal in bridal confections!
My cooking tragedies
I had a bride who was very particular with her desires for her cake. She chose an icing that was heavy and very sticky, that I was fearful would cause the cake to tear and collapse. She demanded this icing, so I warned her of the likelihood of the cake collapsing, but she insisted on the icing, so I prepared her cake as she wished, and it collapsed in the corner of the reception hall in front of all her guests.
