  • Age: 12 Years
  • Neighborhood: Battery Park City, New York
  • First Culinary Creation: Holiday Suga-Cookies
  • Favorite Recipe: Lemon Yogurt Cupcakes
  • Favorite Kitchen Utensil: Whisk!  I just love to stir and whip everything.
  • Favorite Cooking Fact:  Baking powder has cream of tartar in it which allows the dough to rise in the oven without something to react with, it just reacts with itself in the oven.
  • Wants to Cook Next: I really want to cook Sushi.  Now that I know how to I can’t wait to eat it.  I also can’t wait for a Culinary Challenge such as this.

Her response to hearing that she’s been select as our Chef of the Month: ” Really! That can’t be.  Well, I guess it is.  I am so excited!  Yet no one can know – or at least not yet, I need to prove myself even further first, I must get better.  Then the world can know, because I will be worthy of the award, even more than I was before.”
