I am originally from Holland, but moved to the U.S. as a young adult. While there I was fortunate enough to live in Lafayette, LA where I learned all the joys and beauty of Southern and especially Cajun cooking. I have two sons and owned my own catering company for a while (so I am skilled in doing lots of cooking- sometimes the boys and their friends could out eat a catered party!) I have since moved back to Holland and love cooking regularly for my husband and myself. I also enjoy regular market trips for fresh ingredients (although I miss the convenvenience of the States sometimes.) I appreciate a table set in a way that accentuates the food experience. I love to sit around the table eating good food I've prepared, sharing a bottle of wine and laughing about the joys of life.
