The Story:

I turned down Le Cordon Bleu. Every year I'd make a Thanksgiving feast for upwards of 28 family and friends. Every year, dad would offer to send me, and every year I'd say no. I loved food, cooking and sharing the experience of meals so much,  worried that if I learned food as a business, I'd fall out of love with it.  I've loved food  and cooking, since I was smaller than the spoon we stirred cookie dough with. When I discovered food blogging, and food photography, it dove-tailed with my PR Marketing experience and I haven't looked back.
