“To eat good food is to be close to God” – Big Night
To me, good food and good people around a shared table, never go out of style. Food was the center of my life from a young age. I spent hours upon hours in the kitchen with my grandmother. I learned the staples that made up the meals that flowed from her humble kitchen. Rice pilaf, simple tomato sauce, meatballs, roast chicken, soup, cream puffs, chocolate cake. I had a strong desire to be in the kitchen, watching and waiting for my chance to whip the cream or flip the pancake. After I went to university and worked in the film industry for 8 years, I decided it was time for a change and to take my passion for cooking and eating seriously. So when I decided to move to London and start my career in food, I never thought of the places and people food would introduce me to. After attending Leiths School of Food and Wine in London, I started cooking at supper clubs with friends and private cheffing for dinner parties and families looking to incorporate and gain a bit of inspiration into their weekly meals. But then the pandemic hit and life changed a bit, as it did for so many. I started baking sourdough bread as a hobby and that hobby turned into a small bakery out of my home. I started #DoughGood in an effort to help my local community – with every loaf someone purchased, a loaf was donated to those in need of support and essential workers. Word grew and as more people tasted my bread, it even had featured on the Saturday morning show. Since the pandemic times, I can be found cooking at retreats, residencies, private cheffing, and teaching my own cooking classes.
I would love to work with you to help make all your foodie dreams come true. Whether that’s cooking for your next bachelorette/bachelor party, birthday celebration, private cooking class, hosted retreat, vacation, photo shoot, or dinner party. Let’s eat well and have fun doing it!
