About Me

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.

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.

I spend my days thinking about what to eat next and am happy to take you along for the journey. I hope you enjoy the recipes in my food blog and portfolio and 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.

Testimonials

Hello Dorothy and Sondi!

I bought your Anti-Inflammatory Diet and Action Plans book from Barnes and Noble before the holidays and let me just tell you how it has really made me exciting about cooking! I am 28 and was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis at 22, and this book makes cooking nutritious meals that are good for my body so easy it feels like magic! My boyfriend and I refer to your book as “The Book” because everything we have made from it has been incredibly delicious and it makes us so excited to cook together. Our favorite was the Garlic Mustard Lamb Chops.

Thank you so much for putting together such an informative and easy to follow cookbook, I will be cooking out of it for years to come!

Hi Dorothy!
I was diagnosed with Graves disease early this summer. In order to best take care of myself (better than before as I was eating fairly clean, exercising, etc.), I began an adapted elimination diet/anti inflammatory diet. I checked out your cookbook (The Anti inflammatory Cookbook, with food plans) from my local library. I have looked at many recipes online and also other cookbooks geared to autoimmune conditions. Your book, thus far, has the best variety and good tasting recipes. They are relatively easy, use common ingredients and are delicious.

Thank you for your efforts in publishing the cookbook. It has made my search for tasty, wholesome, anti inflammatory foods much easier! I even recommended your book to my nutritionist.

Good luck in your future endeavors, especially in the food and cooking world!
