A COOK’S BEST FRIEND
If you buy only one kitchen tool this month, make it a good knife. Experts recommend knives that weigh at least 7 ounces or more. After that, what matters most is how well it fits your hand. Most cooks find molded plastic handles most comfortable.
PUT THESE ON YOUR SHOPPING LIST
For most cooking and baking, regular ingredients are fine. There are a few items worth splurging on however. These include quality baking chocolate, extra virgin olive oil, maple syrup, pure vanilla, prosciutto and cheese. The difference in taste is remarkable.

I pondered how I would venture into the food service industry.
For a number of years I owned and operated a small custom
catering and dessert business while working fulltime as a human
resources specialist. During this time I traveled to Italy to study
Umbrian regional cooking and completed a program in Wedding
Cakes from the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone in
Through all these travels, wonderful food experiences, and culinary
training, I knew that I wanted to share these foods and cooking
experiences. So through my membership with the United
States Personal Chef Association, I ventured into my own personal
chef service, Glorious Gourmet PCS.
I have continued to enhance my food knowledge through a basic
nutrition program and am a cooking lecturer/instructor for adults
and children at several nearby Community Colleges. I also volunteer as a culinary instructor for the Cooking Matters Programs through Second Harvest Food Bank of Lehigh Valley.
I am an avid gardener and harvest crops that I have grown in my garden so that my family and friends can enjoy the produce, not only in the summer and fall, but also through the winter months.
By sharing my food and cooking knowledge, I hope to be a resource to others to enhance their cooking skills, experience new food ideas. to cook healthy and delicious foods, and, of course,
HAVE FUN DOING IT!
