good food, good fun, good life


Hello! Welcome to my website. I was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas.  Mine was a food-loving family. When I was a young child, my foodie mother received her certification in London at the Le Cordon Bleu cookery school, and began a local cooking school for adults and children, as well as a catering service, focusing on healthy family fare that could be prepared with a minimum of fuss. Seeing my mother featured in local newspapers and standing at her elbow as she taught and cooked, helped me develop my own skills and interest in cooking. After I graduated from Emerson College in Boston, I moved to Los Angeles to work in the film industry. After 9 years in Southern California, I fell in love with the fresh and healthy Southern Californian cuisine and the Baja Californian cuisine after many trips to the Mexican seaside. After marrying my Swiss-American husband, we determined that a move to Europe was in the cards. Clean air and beautiful scenery were a wonderful change of pace from crowded and smoggy Los Angeles. But my love of international foods, Mexican and Tex-Mex in particular, became the catalyst for me to learn to recreate all of my favourite dishes, and push me to be more creative and experimental in the kitchen. After 15 years of living in Switzerland, becoming Mama to two children, a dog, 10 chickens, 2 ducks, and a rooster… as well as looking after a house built in 1747 in the Swiss countryside, I began to offer my own cookery courses and bespoke catering services. I hope to share my love of cooking and enjoyment of food with all of Switzerland.
