From the farm to the table

Not only as a chef my first choice is farm to table, but also being the daughter of two immigrant parents that have an agricultural background, I choose to enforce the traditions that I was raised with.  Cooking for me is very personal.  It is creating the memories that I have as a child.  I is also connecting with the earth that gives us life. As everything in life, I have learned that creating food is hard work.  My grandmother used to wake up every morning at 4am to start her day: feeding the animals, milking the cows. As a child spending my summers in Honduras, the last thing I wanted to do was wake up at this hour to. Help my grandmother with the duties of running a small farm, but I also learned the value of hard work and dedication.
