Growing up in a wonderful family of farmers and cooks, I had no choice other than to become a chef. My childhood was my own personal Greek festival, weekends spent at the farm exploring the agricultural wonders surrounded by cousins, eating produce off the vine or branch, dancing, singing, and feasting. It is this background that has shaped my career and cooking philosophy which is, beautiful ingredients, simply prepared.
In addition to creating a restaurant in my mother’s kitchen at age 6, I cooked and baked my way around both coasts and returned to the Bay Area to open my own restaurant and catering company called Bombar’s. We closed the catering company in 2008 and I have been writing, teaching cooking, developing recipes, and consulting ever since.
As an author and chef, I have published three cookbooks available in my Amazon Shop. Two on anti-inflammatory diets, and one on the health benefits of Mediterranean eating. To learn more about my professional background find me on Linked In.
All my training and life experience has taught me one fundamental truth: good health comes from moving every day, and eating delicious whole, clean and real food. It’s that simple. But simple doesn’t necessarily mean easy. Recently, I have received a certification in Wellness Coaching. I’d be happy to set up a complimentary call with you to discuss your situation. Contact me to find out if Wellness Coaching is right for you.
I love to spend my days thinking about what to eat next and am happy to take you along for the journey. I hope you enjoy the stories in my food blog and the recipes in my portfolio. I would love to hear from you as you try them. Feel free to contact me, or comment on the individual posts. I try to respond fairly quickly.
