About Me

 Welcome to The Girl In The Little Red Kitchen

Thank you for visiting my blog, this page is a chance for me to tell you a little more about myself.   

Please check out my work with me page for more information on what I can do for you. 

Me
 The Little Red Kitchen is a place for me to share recipes, culinary adventures around the world and food or drink related events here in New York City where I reside. 

I have no formal culinary training, I learned to cook from watching my mom, Julia Child, Jacques Pepin, Alton Brown and Sara Moulton.  I have fond memories of watching those shows on PBS with my parents and later on sitting in my room at night watching Good Eats and Cooking Live.  I had clearly developed a passion for food at an early age. 

Eventually, I put everything I soaked in on TV to test and started to cook.  Turns out, I wasn’t half bad!  In the last few years I started to become more serious in my cooking and baking and started to stray away from recipes.  I developed original recipes and cooked more by feel than by structure. 

The recipes you will find here are original or inspired from a recipe that I came across.  Some are also adapted and I always give credit where it is due.

I live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband and the cutest dog ever. I cook in my 80 square foot, newly remodeled kitchen  (I wasn’t kidding when I said it was little)!   

I love life in NYC and the culinary opportunities it offers.  I try to go to as many food events as my calendar will allow and if there is a good beer event, you are certain to find me there!

While I don’t consider myself a reviewer, if I have a special meal out, I will recap it here from time to time.

A sampling of my Le Creuset collection

I have a small obsession with Le Creuset and am amassing a small army of Le Creuset pots and pans.  The majority of what I cook is on one of these, which will not affect the result of my recipes, but I like to note that if you have some Le Creuset or cast iron pans to use them with my recipes.
