Welcome to my cooking blog, Cooking with Scents. My goal is to simply create culinary memories for those I cook for. As a personal chef, I cater to people’s food needs. As a home cook, I cater to the personal needs of my friends by hosting dinners, celebrations and other events. Mangia, Mangia!
My kitchen is my sacred sanctuary, surrounded by warm terra cotta colors, photos of places in Italy and plenty of kitchen gear. Behold, it also holds many fond memories. It is where friends, relatives and neighbors have gathered in conversation, laughter and food apreciation.
The spirit of my Italian ancestors is felt all around me while I am cooking. The maternal grandmother who, unfortunately I never got to meet, seems to guide me in a steady flow around the kitchen. They have all joined forces with me to create pure food bliss.
What perfect company to keep while I saute, braise, stir fry, boil and bake.
This is where I will share my passion of food. This is where I show the wonder of culinary magic!
