    On a more personal note

    Not just a cook . . .

    Cooking is one of my great loves and passions and there is so much more to me than just food. I am permaculture design certified, an artist, novice gardener and intuitive.

    I am committed to supporting local and small businesses in Fresno and showing up for community in any way I am able.
