Community Engagements

In the fall of 2014, I participated in Braise’s Culinary School 10-week-long program where we covered all you need to know to be a great home chef. It was a blast and I learned so much! Consider me like an oyster – freshly shucked from the bottom of the sea floor to share pearls (of wisdom) and tasty treats as I ingest them. Link to the 10-part blog series can be found here.
