With a mom from France and a family passionate about cooking, I couldn't help but become a foodie. Do it, watch it, and read about it. But most of all, I enjoy sharing successes with family and friends. Cooking is a way of giving back to those who are special to me. I absolutely love it!
Avid golfer as well so summer is a little bit of hiatus during those months in CT. Second home in Florida affords me opportunity to do both - loving it.
I believe the most important elements to being a successful cook are using the best ingredients you can find and seeking new preparations and ideas.
Favorite dishes: picked lobster meat with haricot verts, butter and tarragon; crepes filled with marscapone and fromage blanc, baked briefly and topped with a fresh raspberry coulis
Last food prepared (before I go play golf): granola for me and breakfast egg/veggie cups for rest of week for hubby. Brining pork chops for dinner and just made braised cabbage as side.
Best new restaurant tried: El Paseo, Tyler Florence's new restaurant with Sam Hagar in Mill River, CA. Awesome - wonderful California fare with lots of soul. The best deviled eggs I've ever had - bacon, lettuce and tomato. Very cool.
