With an Italian background, she cites her Mother and grandmother ( Mamie ) as the major influence of her love for food. Yes, homemade pasta hung from the clothesline in the kitchen and rolling 100 meat balls for a holiday dinner was the norm. Raised in Pennsylvania, she spent time in Atlanta, Georgia and ultimately settled along the stunning coast of Laguna Beach, Ca. Self taught in everything, she learned to appreciate the amazing flavors, scents and uses for exotic herbs and spices and applies her knowledge to cooking today. Despite enjoying other creative endeavors like photography, clothing design and painting, she realized she would never love another career the way she loves the stories surrounding food. It's capturing those stories that has not only become her greatest passion but a culinary drug worth passing around! After all, food is a shared experience and no one better to share it with than the entire world. Thus the Food Stalker was born, utilizing all that passion and her fearlessness to capture even the most impossible stories for there are so many exciting things that go into creating even the smallest dish, but "impossible" never one of them, as every great chef knows. It's one thing to write about food, but far more exciting to actually capture it and all those stories that make every scent come to life. And once she sets out, there's no stopping her, because no one follows that scent better than her---and there is no telling where she'll end up next...
