Again and again, dear reader, you asked if I’d be writing a book about this Adventure.

My heart heard you.

You spoke the very dream I danced around.


Thanks in great part to your unfaltering belief in my mission of creating peace and understanding through food, my memoir LIFE FROM SCRATCH: A Memoir of Food, Family, and Forgiveness, will be published by National Geographic in March, 2015.

The memoir will contain stories and recipes from my life – starting with early childhood, all the way through the blog. In it you’ll learn the deeper reasons of what drove me to cook the world, as well as my search for inner peace, love, and belonging. You may now preorder the book on Barnes and Noble and Amazon!

Thank you for being there.

Thank you for believing in this journey.

With all my love,
