1) Where does your passion for food come from?
My passion for eating! Since my products are things to use in the kitchen and not food as such, I have enjoyed painting images of some of my favorite foods as well as items that just bring colorful cheer in the kitchen.
2) Tell us about your culinary journey.
It started with friends in grad school that loved cooking and they introduced me to some of their favorite cookbooks (like those by Nigella) and then when I met my husband, he introduced me to Alton Brown, Food Network, and we just love cooking together.
3) Where is your favorite place to eat?
That changes depending on my mood, but often we go to this little mom-&-pop dive in the U-district for Lebanese food, Cedars. The mom in there makes an unbelievably delicious hot green sauce that goes magnificently on everything they make there.
5) Tell us about a new product you are working on.
While I already have a Dungeness crabs tea towel, I am working a design that is just covered in red crabs since folks really like seeing them cooked more than live.
6) What will our fans find at your booth this fall?
Deluxe flour sack tea towels, ceramic mugs, and lightweight aprons.
