Why do you love cooking? To me cooking is very passionate and creative. Not only can you create with color and texture, but you can create with flavor. It touches all senses and to me that’s powerful. If I’m cooking you a meal — you know I love you.
What should readers know about you? I’m a firm believer in serving fresh whole foods but I also believe in moderation. A tortilla chip every now and then never hurt anyone, right? I also love indie songwriters, jazz, blues, Irish punk music, wear sock monkey slippers on a daily basis, enjoy cooking wild game, and would own a food truck if I could. Oh yeah, and I secretly wish I could sing like Koko Taylor.
