My passion is food; writing about it, creating it, photographing it and eating it. I guess there is something about the look, taste and smell of food that evokes strong and beautiful memories for me about my past that draws me back to my kitchen day after day.
I began my career as the owner and chef of Ruchetta Fine Foods, a specialty food store and catering business on Fishers Island, New York. I went on to create the Boulder Bridal Showcase in Boulder, Colorado and the Legacy Outdoor Market in San Antonio, Texas and became the Trade Show Director for the natural products industry’s largest and most significant trade shows and conferences, including the Natural Products Expo. Most importantly, I am a mom to my grown son and a partner in life with my fabulous and funny husband. We reside in the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Boulder, Colorado, where I am a real estate broker.
I suppose I could be described as a sentimental cook and that is fine by me as it is usually around a meal that we gather with family and friends to celebrate joyous and meaningful occasions, important life rituals and traditions. These are the times we remember.
