Personal Chef, Cuisine at its Best
Since 2006 I have cooked for birthday parties, graduations, small church groups, spa parties and movie nights. I have a deep interest in learning about the full life cycle of eating: from seed to plate. I have a share in Potomac Vegetable Farms, a community supported agriculture farm. Last summer I taught myself how to preserve and can pickles, apple sauce, peach sauce and other local produce. This year I plan on building a square foot vegetable and herb garden. Feeding people is my passion.
