delight in the magic of cooking
Grounded in French techniques enriched by California’s multicultural influences I rely on a deep knowledge of the best local producers and gourmet purveyors. My cooking is at once elegant and relaxed, healthy and playful. My hands-on cooking classes have received wide acclaim, as have my homemade preserves. I also offer intimate dinners and special celebrations in the comfort of your own home.

Beyond recipes, it is the spirit of delight in the magic of cooking that I want to share with you. Technique matters and you will learn much in our time together, but in addition to skills I will introduce you to a relaxed, intuitive approach that will transform the way you relate to food.
