I learned how to cook at a vegetarian co-op in college, which makes me somewhat unusual as cooks go -- the hippie co-op cooking style still informs most of my cooking. I've been vegetarian since 2005, and I love teaching people that food can taste good even without meat. I love cooking local, organic food with lots of veggies, and my local farmer's market is the best part of living in a city, food-wise.
