In The Kitchen

Let’s start with the best sea salt hundreds to choose from, the aroma of fresh herbs oregano, rosemary, dill tarragon, the best cold pressed extra virgin olive oil, and my favorite tomatoes bursting with flavor San Marzano, heirloom, Roma are prevalent in my cooking fresh fish, Lamb and pasta cooked in different ways is amazing. Lemon, orange and spices like turmeric, cumin, ginger, cinnamon are key in bringing out the flavors of my dishes and to end always cook with fat, acid, spice, salt, and sweet elements in My Mediterranean kitchen
