I've been cooking ever since I was a little girl. Sharing the kitchen with my parents and grandparents are some of my earliest memories. However, going to The Culinary Institute of America truly refined my knowledge of food, cooking and what it means to be a chef. That's where I learned patience, techniques and the importance of keeping a clean kitchen. This year, I'm happy to announce that I'm teaming up with my alma mater to spotlight some creative recipes by their current students.

Being a young chef in culinary school is not easy. You're trying to perfect your craft, keep up with your schoolwork and get real world experience in restaurants you admire. However, young chefs are passionate and super creative. They're putting twists on classic recipes, inventing new techniques and bringing fresh ideas to the table.
Every month, I'll be sharing a creative recipe by a current CIA student. Be sure to follow me on instagram to see the posts!
Since we're all staying at home, it's the perfect time for me to connect with y'all as much as possible. With the help of my kids and my wonderful wife, I started a new series on Instagram, calledCORA-ntine Cuisine. Everyday at 5 pm PST, I'll be cooking my favorite recipes. Be sure to tune in!
When I first heard of the Coronavirus, I never thought things would get this far. I never thought it would spread worldwide or that cities would go into lockdown. I also never thought that it would be difficult to buy things like toilet paper and hand sanitizer. However, the best thing that we can do right now is to stay positive, stay healthy and be kind.
