Ok, I’m trying to get back into my weekly blogging. I’ve been intending to feature Vanessa since April 8! That’s how far behind I am. Since that time I think I’ve seen her at two events around Chicago.
Vanessa has an awesome blog with tons of great recipes. Her Sour Cream Banana Muffins with Oatmeal Crumble look incredible. I want to give those a try.
Here’s a little about Vanessa:
I grew up in France where my mother still lives. We moved around a lot due to my father’s job and before I graduated from college in DC, I got to live in France, England, New York, Brazil, Morocco, and Barcelona. All that travel just left me craving more, more tastes, more smells, more adventure. I’m happiest when packing a suitcase, or four.
I am not a classically trained chef. I took a lot of recreational cooking classes after graduating from college at the Institute of Culinary Education in NYC, but I decided to get my MBA instead of leaving my marketing job to work in a kitchen. I learned most of what I know in my mother’s kitchen in France. I am the chef of my home kitchen, and I aspire to be a true chef, one day, when I grow up.The dream begins after my kids leave the nest for college or other pursuits. That’s when my husband and I will spend a couple of years traveling the world attending various cooking schools. And then we’ll come back to a cozy little town somewhere in the States and open up our little restaurant. We hope you’ll drop by and break bread with us.And until then, I’ll keep dreaming, right here, at Chefdruck Musings.
It’s always a pleasure running into Vanessa at events. She’s very nice to talk to; she has a great personality!
