For me cooking is about family, community and tradition. I was born and raised in Saint Louis, Missouri. I absolutely love cooking. What I love most about cooking is the ability to be creative. It allows me to experiment with different cuisines and techniques. It also gives me the opportunity to learn about different cultures which are fascinating. I truly believe that anyone can cook and it can be fun and needed especially in the times we are in now. Being able to look in your pantry and create something out of what you have is just an incredibly satisfying feeling.
