COOKING

Some people cook because they have to, to feed their family. Others cook just because they love doing it. Professionals cook because that's their job. I cook for all 3 reasons!

Visit my cooking classes page to see upcoming courses.

Right now, I'm reading:


by Cook's Illustrated Editors
Part cooking course, part kitchen reference, and part foolproof recipes, The Complete Book of Pasta and Noodles extensively covers the basics of pasta and noodles. This thoroughly researched and taste-tested guide is dedicated to the home cook who needs practical advice on everything from penne to pad thai. This book inspired my Pasta Basics & Beyond course!

For more books, please visit my Reading List page!
