My Recipes

My trademark cuisine is described as “Bohemian Bold” I like creating simple, albeit sophisticated, dishes that are hearty and robust. I think ‘peasant’ food can become chic and gourmet with some creativity! Using easy-to-find ingredients and fresh foods—vegetables in-season, traditional cuts of meats, seafood, fresh herbs, spices and seasonings, then fashioning unlikely combinations into an eclectic ‘new’ dish that has traces of other cuisines—Italian, Greek, Creole, Southern (European, African and Native American), Mediterranean, Asian, etc. My Bohemian Bold trademark cuisine is casual, great for entertaining and intended to wow the eye, tease the taste buds, be yummy for the tummy, and leave a person wanting more.
