"To Me, Food is Family"
Growing up in New Hampshire and being raised on a lake, I have always had a love for the water. I was also lucky to not be far from the ocean this combination led to a lot of fishing, clamming and lobstering and hunting for mussels. The women in my family were all great cooks, especially my mother and grandmothers; we did not do anything without cooking good food and enjoying good spirits. I wanted to learn how to cook my catch at 12 years old and had the people to show me. This began my culinary journey.
