Bio: Ever since I was a young, I was always in the kitchen. Whether it was with my nonnas or with my mom, I was either stirring the pot or watching as they would move around the kitchen with such ease. Since then it had always been my dream to be a chef and open a restaurant. My cousins and I would joke a lot about opening a family restaurant and everyone would have their own specific role in it.
My philosophy towards cooking has been influenced by the food I was raised on. Simple Italian cuisine has been the backbone of my family. Whether it was a simple pasta bolognese or a muset (boiled meat), I love the modern and rustic Italian cooking. While writing this I want to include quotes from chefs that I find interesting. The one quote that really stuck in my head while writing this was this one:
“YOU DON’T HAVE TO COOK FANCY FOOD OR COMPLICATED MASTERPIECES – JUST GOOD FOOD FROM FRESH INGREDIENTS.” – JULIA CHILD – (http://chatteringkitchen.com/culinary-quotes/)
I feel like this quote will be one that sticks with me throughout my career as a future chef. Unfortunately I am not working in the industry yet, but a few opportunities have raised and I am almost positive many more will be coming my way. What I hope to show from this blogging experience is my background, passion and love for food and all that is cooking. Enjoy
