Recently retired, I am an amateur chef. My grandparents ran an elite restaurant in the late 1800's and my grandmother was one of the first women Master Chefs. French born in 1860 in Nice, France, she was one of the youngest students (age 15) to study privately under Master Chef Georges Auguste Escoffier. After completing her courses, she relocated to New York City and married a prominent second generation restaurateur and created an entire new cuisine based upon German, Hungarian and Jewish cultural heritages adding to each dish her French culinary expertise. I have compiled all her famous recipes and will place some of them on this site from my recently published eBook entitled "Authentic Original 1890 Recipe Cookbook".
