I cook for the same reason I travel -- to experience the thrill of discovery. When I was 18, I loaded up a backpack and spent five months studying Spanish and traveling around Mexico. That trip, and my discovery of real Mexican food, launched what's become a life long love of cooking and travel.
The best part is bringing those discoveries home. I know I'm successful when the food I've prepared becomes an exciting backdrop to a lively conversation at the table.
Come sit with me and enjoy!
