Pastry Chef exploring the farms of Sonoma County and creating recipes.

We moved to Sonoma County in 2010. I was a pastry chef in Los Angeles for 15 years. My husband and I wanted to raise our children closer to nature. We created our family home in the Valley of the Moon.

I find myself drawn towards discovering the local farms and meeting the farmers who dedicate themselves to the land. I am working on a collection of recipes featuring the bounty that Sonoma County holds.

I hope you enjoy reading about our discoveries and recipe creations as much as we enjoy making these memories.

Peace and Love...
