Food Talk

Whether it’s around the kitchen table, or sipping wine and chatting, we all have our food stories. Tales of rave reviews, amazing recipes and unfortunate flops. Kitchen fires and dramatic flambes. Smoke filled kitchens and smoked salmon.

Here I’ll share my kitchen stories with you, and I hope you’ll share your stories with me.

So grab a glass of wine, cozy up to the kitchen island, and let’s talk.
