Fun Facts

  • I am bilingual. Ask me about how speaking Spanish in Poland saved me in the middle of a snowstorm.
  • When I was 13, I won a Virginia cooking contest and met and cooked with Art Smith, Oprah Winfrey’s chef at the time.
  • I am fascinated by the wine-making process, and I have visited over 30 wineries across North American and Europe. A vino tinto, crianza (a young Spanish red) is currently my favorite!
