Hi there and thanks for stopping by! I’m Cheryl, Chef by day and Blogger by night!

I attended culinary school in New York and am a classical-trained Chef who worked in fine dining and high-end catering for over 13 years in New York City before  I started my own personal chef and catering business four years ago. Every week I create fresh, healthy menus for busy clients featuring local, seasonal foods.

I am the recipe writer, food & beverage tester, photographer and dishwasher at Pooch’s Pantry where I blog about my life in food. My blog is about making great food. accessible to every level of cook and taking the fear. out of the kitchen by demonstrating that you don’t need to be a professional .to make amazing and delicious meals at home.

My recipes have been featured on BuzzFeed and Huffington Post Canada. I have a cook book obsession and an unwavering love of sweets. Milk and cookie is still my favorite snack. When I’m not in the kitchen, you can find me in the saddle on my road bike or planning my next adventure!
