I’m Julie, a twenty-something-year-old, Jersey-based woman, who’s truly passionate about cooking. Having spent most of my life in Florida and New Jersey, you can say I know great pizza and a good Cuban sandwich. In fact, I wholeheartedly believe that I can make the best Cuban sandwich.
My favorite cuisines are Indian and Mexican, although Cuban black beans and ropa vieja will forever have my heart.
I’m obsessed with food. I attended the Kosher Culinary Arts Center in New York City, worked in several restaurants and bakeries, and finally started my cooking channel on Youtube in late 2012. Recently, I started this blog in efforts to share this passion.
Food isn’t all; I also enjoy surfing, traveling, reading, poker, skiing, and lying on the beach until the sun goes down, preferably with some sushi and white wine.
