Creating seasonal meals that nourish
body and soul
A health focused approach to serving and showcasing beautiful, delicious food
It brings me no greater joy than to create a beautiful experience for others to remember. I specialize in preparing and presenting family-style, bountiful platters composed of farm-to-table, seasonal ingredients. I cater to private celebrations of up to 30 people, from retreats to corporate events, family brunches, romantic dinners or anything else that you might dream up and find yourself in need of my services.
I find recipe and menu development to be one of the most creatively rewarding aspects of working in the food realm. With over a decade of experience, I have worked in many different capacities, from magazine publication test kitchens, to freelance recipe development for websites, to the curation of menus for special events. Whether a business is in need of consultation services to update menus, or in need of unique recipes, I create cohesive menus and standardized recipes keeping health and seasonal ingredients at the forefront of development.
Whether you are a brand looking to bring life to a product, a restaurant in need of a creative boost, or a blogger who would like to outsource recipe photography, I can work with you to develop a vision and execute all aspects of styling and photography for your business.

I jumped on the short seasonality of ramps (similar to a green onion) and used them for this...Read Post
Strawberries and Cardamom Cashew Cream During a recent trip to London, I happened to eat in this beautiful Notting Hill restaurant called Farmacy. The menu was very interesting and I opted to order an omelette along with a fruit and house-made vegan yogurt parfait. I knew that a parfait would not fill me up. But...Read Post
