I was born and raised in North Carolina and Charlottean for the past 25 years. My love for food started when I was a kid taste testing my father’s creations in the kitchen. I grew up learning to appreciate good quality, the local food industry and being open to new and unique styles of cooking. Food brings people together and in a city like Charlotte that is full of so many transplants, I want to keep the value of sharing local meals a top priority. Welcome to my food and lifestyle guide to the Queen City.
