I have been cooking since I was 10 years old...learned from my mother, a great cook in her own right. One of my first toys was the Easy Bake Miniwave Oven. I've had 4 years of professional cooking classes from the University of Wisconsin - Stout. My degree is in Hospitality and Tourism Management. I am a Corporate Meeting and Event Planner for a company in the Twin Cities Metro Area. I love my job!!!
