Cooking is my creative outlet—and food is how I connect with others.
I trained as a chef years ago and have been tinkering in the kitchen ever since. I prefer gathering around a kitchen to fine dining—and I’ll take pie over cake anytime. But what I love most is sharing my passion for food.
If you live in Victoria, BC, I hope you’ll join me for a cooking class. If you live elsewhere, I’d love to see you at my upcoming online classes. There’s nothing I enjoy more than instilling confidence in the kitchen, so wherever you are along your cooking journey, let's connect!
