delight in the magic of cooking

Grounded in French techniques, enriched by a love of California’s multicultural influences. Relying 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. Every menu is custom built around the specific preferences of my clients. A demonstration cooking class with optional hands-on participation by the guests is a fun addition.

    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.
