My obsessions-Italy and Cooking


Let’s Get Cooking!

Do you live in the San Diego or southern Orange County? Are you tired of cooking the same old things? Do you have trouble getting dinner on the table? Don’t even tell me you’re eating take out night after night! Let me help you out.

If you’ve stopped by here more than a few times, you know that food is my passion. Over the years I’ve been a cook for a family, ran a dinner delivery business, was a caterer and owned a cafe. I’ve been shopping at my local farmers’ market for the past twenty years, before it was the “in” thing to do. I cook with the seasons and sometimes that drives J. crazy since I won’t buy tomatoes in the winter!

I am offering two different services for those of you who live near me. Get into the kitchen with me for private cooking classes. My specialty is Italian cuisine and the food of the Mediterranean. From starters to homemade pasta to desserts, you tell me what you’d like to know more about.

Don’t really have the time or the interest in cooking yourself but want delectable, well balanced meals? I am available to prepare food to go which I will deliver to your home. Wouldn’t it be great to come home and not have to worry about what’s for dinner?

You may live somewhere else in the country but if you know someone in my neck of the woods, fill them in on my blog and my services. Want to know even more about the food of Italy? Come along with me on my next trip to Tuscany next spring and we’ll explore, shop and cook together for a fun filled week in the gorgeous walled town of Lucca. Check back next week for the specifics on the tour.
