I'm an avid home cook, who loves to share delicious food with friends, family and strangers. I've travelled extensively and have learned about various techniques and cuisines from across the world. Beyond that, I've been shortlisted for MasterChef Canada twice -- unfortunately, never making it to television.... but I guess that makes me a well kept secret! *There is a shy cat named Maurice, who lives with me. He will be closed off in the bedroom, where he likes the peace and quiet — and the warm bed.
