Welcome to My Kitchen
I’m Mary Sage, home cook, budding author, untrained but enthusiastic chef. I started blogging about food almost five years ago when I started taking cooking classes. I took cooking classes everywhere — the Le Cordon Bleu College, Chateau Elan, our local high schools, a couple of stores. If they held a class within driving distance, I took it.
What I learned was that great chef’s have good technique, good tools, and they know how to use spices and seasoning.
Come join me on a cooking adventure. Some things work out great; some not so much. But we can learn and explore together.
