About me:
Hi, Thanks for stopping by. My earliest memories are of my father creating one of his famous Neopolitan dishes. He was a professional chef. His superb Zuppa Inglese inspired me to try my hand at baking. By age 8, I was turning out jellyrolls, chocolate custard filled cream puffs, breads, cheesecakes, cinnamon rolls, pasta fagioli, ragu, etc. I remember setting up a little folding table on the corner and selling my baked goods on Saturdays. My father never cooked from a recipe. Nothing was written down. He never measured ingredients the conventional way. I watched everything he did, and asked many questions. He said cooking was an instinct. When asked, "How much of this much of that?" His answer was always, A good cook knows when it's the right amount." Taking his advice and cultivating a gift I inherited, Ive honed my skills to expert status. The satisfaction experienced when my family and guests come back for 2nd and third helpings is the best reward.
