My cooking style is based on simple foods with great flavor. I incorporate fresh produce and local meat with a holistic and alternative approach, with the main focus on foods that are both delicious and healthy to eat.
I learned how to cook from my mom, but the real transformation began when I moved to New York City. When I stepped foot in the Union Square Green Market, it was love a first sight. It inspired me to try new things, create seasonal recipes, and eat local, sustainable foods. Living a busy life and finding time to eat healthy foods on a budget proved to be difficult. I used the basic skills I learned in my mother’s kitchen, and started to explore alternative preparations and dietary theories. This lead me on a path to enroll in the Institute of Integrative Nutrition to become a certified holistic health coach. I look forward to the opportunity to help people develop healthier, more energetic lifestyles, starting first with what they choose to cook and eat.
