For me, cooking is...
Love's most versatile form of communication. Food is a vessel in which love and passion for heritage, culture, creativity, and gratitude.
I learned to cook at...
Home first, cooking dinner for my family as child and being mentored by my parents, whom had owned multiple restaurants.
A role model in the kitchen is...

A cooking secret...
Understanding the roots, whether it be origin of a piece of produce or the culture within a sub-region of a nation that a dish is based out of.
