Although I now daylight as a number cruncher, in what seems like a former life I was a pastry chef, so my goal for Almacucina is to share what I've learned from 30 years of baking. In those years I certainly enjoyed more than my fair share of chocolate and sugar and I still have a veracious sweet tooth (just ask my Dentist), but these days the focus is more on a light, nutritious, unprocessed, plant based diet. I want to share this way of eating as well.
Besides eating and cooking, often at the same time, I make jewelery, mixed media art and silk screened fabric. You can see my work at BirdSong.
My husband and I live outside of Philadelphia with a cat and two dogs in a tiny house with a messy garden. We love to walk, take long drives out in the country in his convertible Mustang and shop at Wegmens.
We're blessed to live in an area so close to an abundance of farms and farmer's markets and I love getting out and finding fresh dairy, eggs and produce. I'm not alone in this trend and my prediction is it will only get bigger as more and more people see the advantages of eating local, fresh and mindfully grown food.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Please leave comments and suggestions, this is an interactive medium and I would love to hear what you think! Oh, and about the name. Alma was my grandmother and she had one rockin' cucina.
Thanks for stopping by. I love, love, love getting comments so don't be shy and speak your mind. Here it's always OK to talk with your mouth full!
