About Kitchen Chat:
Welcome to my kitchen – a gathering place to sample and share. Thank you for joining me on my culinary journey. It's a special way to honor my late father, who was an incredible gourmet home chef. My biggest regret in life was not going into the kitchen with him and learning how to cook. He passed away 25 years ago. Midlife, I am discovering my dad's joy of cooking along with great tips and trends from chefs and foodies. Please sign up for my newsletter and subscribe to my weekly podcast. Let's chat together in my kitchen. What are your favorite recipes? What are your questions for guests on the show? Please click on the Contact button and connect with me. I would love to hear from you.
