THE PATTER BEHIND THE BAR
I'm one of eight children, and the oversized wooden table that my siblings and I grew up with sits in my kitchen today. When I was raising my own family, the kitchen was the center of our home. It still is.
I earned a Master's in Public Administration at Columbia University, but when we relocated to London, my husband John encouraged me to turn my passion for culinary arts into a career. After training at Le Cordon Bleu, my many paths led to teaching cooking classes at William Sonoma, and then for my neighbors and friends at our historic Boston home. My passion to teach people about food was solidified as a staff educator at Whole Foods.
Food has been such a gift in my own life that I just feel compelled to share it with others. Sourcing the best ingredients, treating them with the respect they deserve, sharing with the people that I love: what's better?
It's always been my dream to make great food accessible to everyone, and patterbar is just the beginning of that.
