“I grew up in the rural hamlet of Alexandria, Minnesota. My father was a general practitioner who loved practicing medicine and inspired me to study medicine. I am engaged to be married, have two children of my own and soon, two stepsons. When not working I can be found pouring over contemporary and historic cookbooks and trying to make something edible with my beautiful cast iron pans.”
