Food is a big part of my world. And I don’t just mean eating. I love discovering new food, decoding methods and ingredients, sharing food with the people I love. I love attempting something I’ve never tried before, and while sometimes it ends with a plume of smoke and me crying on my kitchen floor, there are those rare magical moments of a perfectly browned crust, a silky-smooth sauce, or a tender and juicy cut of meat, that keep me coming back for more.
Living in Los Angeles, I often crave the comforts of my Nebraskan roots. I strive to recreate the dishes my mother and grandmother served with ease – or so they made it seem. And along the way, I am trying to build new traditions of my own.
See you in the kitchen!
