My name is Anna.  Welcome to my blog!  I began this blog at the end of 2006.  This was a big year for me.  I decided to leave my comfortable life in Dallas, my friends, my job, my apartment, and move to Upstate New York to pursue my culinary passion at the Culinary Institute of America.  This blog was originally created as a tool to keep up with my friends and to share my experience at the school.
After I graduated from school, I kept the blog and continue to use it as my personal diary – a collection of recipes, restaurant reviews and food photos.  I welcome you to explore this site and hope you learn new recipes ideas and share your own. I am originally from Russia and moved to the United States at the age of 13. I have since lived in Seattle (where I am lucky to live at the moment), Dallas, New York, Des Moines, and Birmingham.  You can say that my passion for food took me places far and away.
I graduated from the Culinary Institute of America in 2008 and have been pursuing culinary milestones (big and small) ever since.  I teach cooking classes (hands on and demo to both kids and adults), develop and test recipes for magazines and cookbook, and eat.  I love to eat!  Will you join me? I would love to hear from you!
Please feel free to contact me with questions, cooking class inquiries, recipe development and testing or just to say hello.

I look forward to hearing from you.
