From My Table To Yours Dearest Reader…
As we are all cooking from home more than ever, it seems like the search for delicious recipes has become a daily activity!
My gift to you is some of my favorite recipes that I compiled in a published cookbook entitled “SIMPLY SUMMER. Gourmet Meals Made Deliciously Easy With Tips for Elegant Living” (available in print and digital format)
How did this cookbook come to be?
In short, it was inspired by the birth of my son in 2005 and my desire to teach him how to cook and to pass on my culinary knowledge.
Before I created EAT LOVE SAVOR®, I spent 5 years as a sous chef and co owner of an award winning French restaurant. I was a culinary novice when I began, and I trained on the job by the side of a European chef. During my tenure, I was the chef for lunch and brunch, sous / prep chef for dinner and floor manager for dinner service among other management tasks for a grueling five years. We had line ups down the street to experience our elegantly relaxed atmosphere and made from scratch gourmet meals.
I learned a great deal during this period of time and spent many a summer roasting in a kitchen! The experience transformed into a fine food and wine enthusiast.
After I left hospitality, I could cook for hundreds, but not for two! So, I deconstructed the process of a professional kitchen, for the home cook, using chef methods and techniques in order to cook and run the kitchen efficiently and deliciously daily. I developed these recipes and complied them into a fun little cookbook. And I swore I would never heat up a kitchen in summer again!… Hence the name of the book and reflects the ease and simplicity of the recipes themselves.
Growing up, my son was by my side daily as I prepared meals in the kitchen and I began to teach him not only to appreciate good food but how to prepare it and manage the kitchen. I began pulling my knowledge together into volumes of recipes, pantry lists I created, grocery shopping and food storage tips, kitchen management techniques and more, always simplifying the methodology and ensuring ease and success. I published one book and have another unpublished manuscript.
The published book SIMPLY SUMMER won a Gourmand World Cookbook Award for “Best Easy Recipes”.
It gives me pleasure on this, the occasion of my Birthday, to give YOU a gift…
For you… Download your digital copy of my cookbook. Bon Appetit!
