I love everything there is to love about food and wine. I don’t have any professional training but I paid attention. My mom was a gourmet cook. I’m obsessed with local road trips. I love Fois gras, oysters and cheese, the stinkier the better. There are very few foods that I won’t try. I worship Anthony Bordain. I married my AMAZING husband in 2012 and love cooking Irish comfort food for him. I’m in a huge cupcake phase right now and on a mission to conquer French Macaroons and the perfect Grand Marnier soufflé. I work in Development (fundraising), I’m an Athletic Director and coach high school girls’ varsity basketball and think it is the most rewarding career ever. I love to laugh, sing 80’s karaoke and I don’t always act my age.
“I drink champagne when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it – unless I’m thirsty.” ~ Madame Lilly Bollinger
