Recipe Development

Do you want to write a cookbook? With over 20 years in the food industry, I draw from a wide range of culinary experiences to create delicious recipes for your first or next cookbook. Taking a farm-to-table approach to recipe development, I work with the seasons and the many regions of the world to craft recipes that are approachable, using ingredients that are widely accessible to all.  

Let's discuss your goals and vision for your book or menu. From there I will work with you to see your vision come to reality. From the initial Mind Map, to the final editing process, I work with you and your company to put together an award winning collection of recipes!

Past Work:

Hungry For Change by James Colquhoun + Laurentine Ten Bosch (2012)

Clean Eats by Dr. Alejandro Junger (2014 NY Times Best Seller)

Eat Fat Get Thin by Dr. Mark Hyman (2016)

Food (What the Heck Should I Eat) by Dr. Mark Hyman (2018 NY Times Best Seller)

Private Dinner Parties

Looking to bring a restaurant quality meal to your home? I love having the opportunity to cook for others, especially in their homes, where you can relax and enjoy your company without needing to stress over the food and service. Whether a causal family get together or a intimate dinner party, I shine when I get to cook in such a personal manner. After crafting a menu based on your dietary needs and seasonal availability, I take care of all the shopping and advanced prep work. I'll even choose the wine if you'd like or whip up a specialized cocktail for you and your friends to enjoy. On the day of the party I slip into your kitchen a few hours before your guests arrive and get cooking. 

By the time your guests arrive at the door, your home will be filled with enticing aromas. Without having to worry about the food, you can enjoy cocktails and light snacks while I put the finishing touches on the first course. Once ready, I plate and serve each course. Hey, I'll even describe each dish if you'd like! Once the desserts are served, tidy up the kitchen and head out, leaving you to enjoy the remainder of the night without having a dish to wash up afterward.

Postpartum Meal Delivery

The journey into motherhood is a beautiful one. As mama and papa plan for the arrival of their new child, there is a lot of work to be done. Postpartum is a special time and one that requires much nourishment. While the parents soak up the first few days/weeks, it is important to ensure that mama is on the path to a speedy recovery. Consuming the right foods will enable her to be more present with her child and be confident that she is getting the right nutrients to put back into her body.

What To Expect

  • 2 quarts of stock (chicken/beef or pork)

  • 2 quarts of soup (changes with the seasons)

  • 1 pint chicken liver pate w/ sourdough crackers

  • 3 days of breakfast porridge
