I’m a chef, a cooking teacher, a recipe developer, a writer, a cookbook author (the upcoming THE NEW MIDWESTERN TABLE), and host of HEARTLAND TABLE on Food Network. I grew up in Minnesota but spent 7 years cooking professionally in New York in fine dining kitchens. I am also a wife and a mom who shoulders some pretty heavy cooking duties. In other words, I may be a former professional but I also cook three meals a day.
