We will start the day in my garden, picking out some herbs and citrus needed for our menu, over coffees with freshly homemade almond milk. After we get to know each other a bit, we will move inside to our Scandinavian farmhouse-style kitchen, where we'll go over our menu of the day. We will prep cook together in the early afternoon over Bossa Nova and banter. About halfway through, we will take an apéritif break outside with our charcuterie board and homemade gluten-free focaccia, and begin our Natural wine tasting, as we wait for some of our dishes to bake and set. After our much needed "rest," we'll head back into the kitchen to finish our various dishes and begin setting our table. We will enjoy each of our courses with a curated glass of Natural wine, talking about the farmers who make the wines and just why pairing is so important with a meal. We will call it a day when all of the wine has been sampled, and there isn't a smidge of room left for one more bite of the Citrus Olive Oil Cake.
When throwing dinner parties in college turned into my part-time job in Charleston, SC I started spending summers helping run a cooking school in Nice, France. I came to Los Angeles to continue pursuing my career in hostessing cooking classes and dinner parties. When I found out I had a gluten-allergy at 20, while living and cooking at a boutique hotel in Spain, I was unrelenting in creating gluten-free recipes that didn't taste gluten-free. Aside from always focusing on local, seasonal cuisine, I focus on creating beautiful menus that don't health conscious (5-tiered cakes and all).

Natural/Biodynamic wine tasting
We will start the day over coffee in my home garden in the beautiful Eastside LA neighborhood of Echo Park. We will be doing most of our preparations in my Scandinavian-style farmhouse kitchen, which opens directly out to our lushly secluded backyard. We will be taking our apéritif and feasts outdoors, where we will also do our Natural wine tasting.
