Emily

I come from a big family of talented home cooks. I have been working in the kitchen exploring food and nutrition with my mother and grandmother since childhood. I had the privilege of sharing incredible meals in my own home with my family every night. That childhood experience instilled in me a passion for cooking for others as well as a great respect for food and the way it nourishes us both in body and mind. I love experimenting with food, but some of my favorite dishes are simple. I love the way a whole roasted chicken surrounded by fresh vegetables makes your entire kitchen smell warm and comforting. I get a great deal of satisfaction from entertaining and have challenged myself with traditional Creole gumbos, Indian curries with layers of warm spices, and entire pigs slow cooked over an open fire in my own backyard. I live on a farm where I spend my spare time entertaining friends, making pottery and weaving baskets.

My cooking story doesn't begin with an inspirational anecdote from childhood or a powerful food revelation. Instead, I first stepped into a kitchen relatively late in life—as a college student looking for a way to save money and eat better. As my skill improved and my passion grew, I began to acknowledge the power of food in our personal relationships, family heritage, and local culture. Soon, I began to see my cooking as a craft—an outlet for creativity honed with a commitment to innovation, flavor, and nourishment for our bodies and the environment. Now, after nearly a decade of educational but unsatisfying work in food service, I'm thrilled to join Emily and her partners at Nourish in bringing a holistic culinary approach to your family's table and the community at large.

I live with my husband, Josue, where we collaborate in our kitchen to create meals together. We love coming up with new recipes, incorporating unexpected flavor combinations and, most of all, sharing the food we make with those we love. In the past few years I have discovered a passion for baking, specifically sourdough bread. I found it was difficult to find bread that was made without preservatives and unnecessary ingredients. This inspired me to start my own company--Vida Sourdough Creations--so I could share my bread with the community. I’m excited to now be able to bring my bread to your table.  In my spare time I enjoy painting and drawing, decorating my home, and listening to jazz.
