What is your earliest memory involving food or wine? My nana walking me to our local mom and pop bakery shop everyday after school. We'd walk into the bakery and get a whiff of their fresh baked pastries and bread. The aroma was amazing. I've been hooked on sweets ever since... My favorite SOBEWFF® memory is: When Rachel Ray and Lee Schrager walked into our booth and I was so star struck that I forgot to take a picture of them devouring our cupcakes. Another charity/non-profit cause important to me is: Special Olympics If I could collaborate with anyone in the world on a project, it would be: The very unique Dominique Ansel I never leave home without my: Phone!!!
