After traveling to over 30 countries, I developed a global palate and paired it with my passion for nutritious foods. I soon founded the catering and fine foods company, Regal Vegan Inc, currently enjoying success with our signature product: Faux Gras™. My affection for decadent food and my holistic nutrition education help me create incredible food that delights, heals, and inspires people to live healthier lives.
I started cooking at the age of 9 thanks to a slim but inspirational Cookie Cookbook from Scholastic and the guidance of PBS chefs Julia Child, Jacques Pepin, The Frugal Gourmet and my mom. As an adult, I studied the art of preparing food through various cooking classes I encountered around the world, including those in the homes of other moms. I also took classes at ICE and Natural Gourmet, worked in the Italian kitchen of Sicilian restauranteur Sal Leone, and studied privately under Bouley/Kutz-seasoned chef, Josh Sharkey. While running The Regal Vegan dinner delivery service, I served 3-course vegan meals, 5 days a week, and loved every minute of it. I am a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition hold a Bachelor's Degree in Communication from Syracuse University.
