What gives you the butterflies about wine? Why is wine meaningful to you?
What gives me butterflies about wine is discovering a wine that I didn't think I would like and finding that it literally dances in my mouth. I especially enjoy the way wine can adapt to different foods and I love exploring ways to create dishes that bring out the complex flavors of wine. Wine is meaningful to me because I feel that it is the "old soul" of alcohol. Everything about wine has so much history and you can taste it while drinking it. There are many times I've had felt like I was standing in the vineyard where the wine came from while drinking it. I also admire the blood sweat and tears that goes into making wine. I just truly love the history behind wine.
What would you pair the Meyer Family Vineyard Gewürztraminer with?
I knew right away that I had to create a dish that was salty. I knew the juxtaposition of the sweet and salt would pair well so I created the Bleu cheese and Bacon Cheesecake. I wasn't wrong.

We absolutely adore your content! Where do you get your inspiration from?
I get my inspiration from any and every type of person who is dedicated to nourishing others. Whether it's the at home cook trying to put a meal on the table for themselves or their family, or the world renowned Chef trying to put a meal on the table to appeal to the masses. Food is a love language and that love can be shown by anyone who makes the effort to put together ingredients to create something greater.
