I am a designer, a cook, and a storyteller. I have a passion for spatial experiences and human interactions. I am always trying to learn more about food, people, and places to see how I can contribute and make them better! My true love is the intersection between food and architecture. I find this bliss while creating communal meals and ritual dinner parties.

Adventures in Mexico – Part 1

Popol Vuh: The Creation Story of the Maya This is an account of the beginning, when all was stillness, silence, and water. There was no light, no land, no plants, no people, and no animals. Six deities, covered, in green and blue feathers, lay in the primordial waters: the Framer and the Shaper, Tepew and Quetzal...

A Year in Photos – 2013

Cooking Architecture | 2013

I read recently about the idea of asking someone what’s best instead of what’s new. I loved this idea of focusing on the good and the curated instead of rushing to whatever is next.

Recently, we had the opportunity...

The Last of the Tomatoes

Cooking Architecture | Tomato Tart

Here in New England, we are now reaping the benefits of a summer that took her sweet old time to warm up. We’ve got pounds and pounds of tomatoes!

Watermelon Tomato Salad

Easy summer salad

I think I am in denial.  I am in denial of the end of summer. I am not ready to accept it’s over, and I’m trying to figure out how to slow everything down. First, I am ignoring all the obvious signs—the fact I need a sweater at night, Juan starting school soon, and people...

Oh, Canada!

Canada Road Trip  | Cooking Architecture

We went to Canada for the weekend.  It’s kind of amazing that you can get in a car and just go to another country, but Boston is closer to Montreal than it is to DC.  It’s kind of magical, you cross an arbitrary line decided upon a couple of hundred years ago and all of...
