As a child, my diet was limited…essentially consisting of chicken fingers, hamburgers, hot dogs and french fries….and very little else. I am embarrassed to say these habits lasted into adulthood. Fortunately, several years working in the restaurant business open my eyes to a whole new world. These days, nothing makes me happier than creating a new recipe with unique ingredients or discovering an unusual menu item at a local restaurant.
I returned to school as an adult and received a degree from Columbia University. I work at a local college helping students and faculty navigate through the brave new world of online learning.
My biggest passions are my three dogs, cooking, entertaining and dining out. I read restaurant reviews religiously and am very excited to be guest blogging for Hudson Valley Restaurant week.
