When I’m not spending time in front of a computer screen, I love to cook for family and friends, big groups or small. Among the big groups, I occasionally cook as a volunteer at Soup Angels in Nyack, NY.

Here is a small sampling of some of my work in the kitchen:

Hearts of palm with sliced radishes over a bed of arugula sprinkled with shredded red-radish zest and apple butter vinaigrette.
