A Chef is “a skilled cook responsible for planning menus, ordering food, food preparation, and manages the kitchen.” I am a self-taught skilled cook. I come from a long line of great cooks on the Portuguese side of my family. At any gathering, there was never a shortage of food and we love getting creative in the kitchen and are excited to see the wonderful things that happen when we just "throw things together!"
I am also a Certified Personal Chef and I read cook books like novels and not a day goes by that I don’t study a menu or look for new recipes. I also love creating my own homemade recipes using fresh ingredients. I am familiar with food sensitivities, allergies and special diets and I am able to adapt recipes accordingly.
I love having food as my creative outlet and I genuinely love cooking and know that that passion comes through in my food.
