Las Vegas



Las Vegas, Nevada

It’s hard to believe that the city of Las Vegas was founded as recently as 1905. In that time, it has gone from dusty railroad town to glimmering “Entertainment Capital of the World,” whose population growth leads the country. Oh, Las Vegas, if Bugsy Siegel could see you now! While the dirt-cheap “all you can eat” buffets and free drinks that once lured hungry gamblers to the city can still be found, the city has gone decidedly upscale in recent years. Today, some of the world’s most famous chefs have opened restaurants in Sin City, flying in to the heart of the desert whatever rare and exotic ingredients their extravagant menus require, from French langoustines to Russian caviar. Locals, meanwhile, can be found far from the strip enjoying the wide array of restaurants serving ethnic and regional American favorites.

About me:
I love to cook, I have been cooking for my family for over 40 years, first for my parents and then for friends and family. I collect cookbooks, I have over 1200. I enjoy having friends over for a "theme night" where I serve menus from various ethnic cuisines. "Chinese night" was voted the best, with "Indian night" coming in a close second.
