Hey fam! For those who are unfamiliar with who I am or what I do, along with blogging and recipe creation, I'm also a private chef and fitness instructor!
Every week I have the pleasure of teaching a young aspiring chef healthy gourmet cooking classes! We've worked together for almost 2 years and I'm proud to say that his skills have flourished over time.
Our classes go like this - I develop the recipes, and he puts them together getting free reign to add whatever he likes! We create beautiful masterpiece and we both learn a lot. It’s an honor to be his mentor.
Hope you enjoy our recipe!
