Growing up in Carpinteria, CA, put a special place in my heart for food and an understanding of farm to table. Every season became something to look forward to. Running around my families ranch, picking avocados, citrus, and blackberries at my friends in Goobinador Canyon. Later in life, I realized that food was my calling. Adopting a plant based life style at 20 years old, I had a better realization of how important organic food was. I believe that putting love in your food brings it back to your soul and every ingredient counts. Living on top of Rincon mountain brought the name of sweet mountain top, where food inspires me to keep its natural beauty and indulge in whats around us.
