People always ask me where I went to culinary school. 

I went to the University of Mom. My mom has her MA in early childhood education and she is brilliant with kids, lucky me (and my bro). So, when she had this little – creative, flighty child she knew exactly what to do with me. I had art supplies, cooking supplies and endless crafts at my disposal. I was allowed to ‘botch’ or play cook all the time – growing up my friends all knew it would be part of our sleepovers! 

The truth is, I had the love and desire to cook my entire life. My mom taught me everything she knew and when she didn’t know something, she learned with me. 

Thanks mom!
