The summer months here in Miami are said to be slow…pretty sure that not much around this electric blend of cultures and lifestyles could ever be called “slow”. However when the temperature and humidity climb many people head for destinations less sweltering making Miami slower. My business on the other hand is anything but slow (except my food of course)! While the cooking classes have calmed down a bit (a welcome reprieve for a short time as they are fabulous but require a lot of energy!) I have been blessed with some wonderful and very interesting new clients. (more…)
I am pleased and honored to announce the cooking classes that I began holding few months ago here in Miami. I have been teaching throughout my career but this has become a weekly event that is getting some attention. Check out the little blurb on Tasting Table Miami last week! This is a new culinary adventure that I am excited about and I look forward to seeing what comes of it.
I have connected with some wonderful people here who are also dedicated to real food and where it comes from. Slow Food Miami is a non-profit grass roots organization that is committed to raising the awareness of how food effects our communities and our lives. They donate all of their fundraising events and donor contributions to build local school and community gardens. Some of the people on the board have become some of my best students and they share so much with me as well! I look forward to helping them with events coming up.They have been instrumental in helping spread the word for my classes and I am eternally grateful!
I am also thrilled and blessed that Lucini Italia has sponsored the classes by donating some of their amazing, delicious and highest quality products to use and to give away during the classes! Renee Frigo Graeff (the president of Slow Food Miami) and her husband Daniel Graeff created Lucini with the commitment to working with small regional farmers, celebrated chefs, health and wellness experts makes their products unsurpassed and their company admirable. THANK YOU Lucini…I LOVE your stuff!!! Look for their products on line and in retail stores, you will not be sorry!
If you know anyone in Miami who loves food, good company and fun send them this way!
