Shari blogs at Whisk: a food blog. She says of herself: "I am an avid foodie based in Ottawa, Canada, My passion is food. Every aspect is interesting to me, from researching the origins of a dish, to making it at home, writing about it, tasting it, and finally capturing its beauty in a photograph.
"I started blogging in January 2008 by focusing on my lifelong dream of attending culinary school and working through a cooking school curriculum using the Le Cordon Bleu at Home cookbook. The "classes" were based on the Le Cordon Bleu curriculum found online and used as a guideline. Several fellow bloggers joined me in this culinary journey, and together we learned a lot about techniques in the kitchen from knife skills to deep frying.
"In September 2009, I enrolled in Basic Cuisine at Le Cordon Bleu Ottawa. It was a dream come true. I graduated from Basic Cuisine in November 2009.
"Also in September 2009, I became the weekly food and wine columnist for Metro Ottawa newspaper, which gives me yet another reason to explore new gastronomic adventures. I work full time as a Technical Writer / Documentation Manager for a software company, and I have three lovely, very active daughters who delight in keeping me busy and like to help out in the kitchen. "
