What inspires me?

When I think about it – it’s really all about the food…

Winter.Sprin.Summer.Fall. Music. Movies with a food scene. New recipes. Conversations with experiences chefs. Tasting menus from upcomming chefs. Meeting someone who wants to learn. Visiting wonderful places with my family: whidbey Island-California Coast-Manhattan… all these things make me imagine foods I really like. They compel me to write about things that I want to share with everyone.
