We start at the Farmers Market at 9:00 am, shop for the best produce, and then we cook and share a wonderful seasonal meal. 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 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.
Heading for Provence
Fragrant fields of lavender, ancient olive groves, sun-drenched villages perched atop limestone cliffs under an azure sky. The details of our planned 2024 small group tour to Provence are coming together.

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.
Shop for my gourmet homemade preserves, hoshigaki, hand-selected seasonal fruit, and other delicious treasures.
