Hey! I'm Amanda, a 20 year old graduate from The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. What am I doing? Pursuing a dream I've had ever since I was knee high. I've been doing this professionally since I was 14, and love every moment of it.
I've traveled a ton since embarking on this crazy lifestyle. That's right, lifestyle. Cooking is more than just a job, its a way of living. When the CIA says "Food is Life" they are not lying. I made food in class, I read about food in my free time, I even watch food on the television. My friends love food, I go on food inspired trips and cook for a payche. Food is definitely life.
I just moved to Palm Beach Florida to follow the dream. Its a big change from living in the north, but it has definitely proven to be worth it. So here it is, my life in food.
