Welcome to Made From Scratch from my little Brooklyn kitchen. I often find myself having conversations about the food I cook and eat. Two people in one week asked me if I ever thought about starting a blog so I knew it was time to share (or shut up about cooking!). My approach to food as you may expect is made from scratch. I was fortunate to grow up with a mother who was a great cook and taught me her skills. In college I taught my roommate how to cook, had weekly dinner parties with friends and baked for late nights in the studio. I think the real turning point though, was when I discovered homemade ricotta. After I realized I could make cheese it opened up a whole new world for me!
For the past year I’ve been a member of a CSA, which has really changed how I cook. I now cook mostly local, seasonal vegetables. It has forced me to be creative with what I cook and try new things. It’s fun!
Some things I’ve been involved in…
I was the citizen judge at the 2010 Vendy Awards.
I was featured on the Downtown edition of Midtown Lunch.
I was interviewed about food trucks for Appetite for Life with Andrew Zimmern.
