Tampa, Florida

Tampa is a great place to eat seafood as the Gulf coast of Florida is abundant with shrimp, flounder, snapper and grouper and then there are freshwater fishes such as catfish and trout in the lakes and rivers nearby. Cuban food is and authentic and abundant with rich flavors and fresh tropical fruits and vegetables. Gardening is great year-round - heirloom tomatoes, strawberries and citrus are easy to find in the produce markets or just along the side of the road. Get your fix of southern food here too with gumbo, crawfish, gator and grits on many restaurant menus.

About me:
My greatest cooking influence is my Grandmother, Mildred Wimer. I started learning to cook step by step with her via the telephone when I was 10 years old. I remember using a chair to stand on to place the roasting pan in the oven as ours was above the range. 30 years later we are still exchanging recipes and swapping cooking secrets.
