My cooking style emphasizes fresh and seasonal ingredients prepared in simple ways that accentuate the flavor and essence of the ingredients. I also like to be improvisational, focusing on techniques and principles rather than strict adherence to recipes. I believe this approach to cuisine makes food more enjoyable to cook and more satisfying to eat. That said, I consider recipes to be an invaluable resource for learning about new dishes and creating an improvisational base to build off from. In this way, a recipe serves as a starting point rather than as a blueprint.

The following is a list of recipes that captures some of the dishes I most enjoy making and eating. Many of them are adapted from existing recipes found online, and I have tried to cite them where possible to give credit where it’s due, and to help with further research. I hope these recipes serve you well on your own culinary adventures.
