Chicken & Dumplings

The key to this recipe is good chicken stock.  There are times when I think store bought chicken stock or broth is just fine, but this isn't one of those times, it's worth the time to make the real deal.

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 and would love to hear from you as you try them, whether my books and on this blog.
