My passion for cooking was created by my love of culture (and music)
When I was 8, my Brother and Mom were traveling a lot since my brother loves to act. My Dad and I got to spend a lot of time together while my brother was filming. My Dad introduced me to different music, and I loved the band ABBA! I loved the music, and wanted to learn everything about them.
My Dad found a show on TV called New Scandinavian Cooking. Since it was about Scandinavia and my favorite band was from Sweden, I loved watching it and learning about Scandinavia. After watching a few shows, I asked my Dad if we could try to cook some of the recipes. We bought all of the ingredients and I trying to loved learning new recipes and learn culture at the same time! I learned to make Swedish meatballs, leg of lamb and Glögg (mulled wine). Check out my video below when I made Stuffed Leg of Lamb!
Watching recipes on television was so visually engaging, I started watching everything I could related to cooking! I am a very visual learner and have a great visual memory, so most things that I watched, I remember. I then found Food Network, and became a Food Network Junkie!!
