Welcome to my food blog, Canapés and Chocolate!
Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, I moved to the Seattle Eastside some 25 years ago. I love finding and creating new recipes, enjoy discovering new restaurants, and trying foods that I am totally unfamiliar with, in hopes it will expand my culinary knowledge. Reading cookbooks as often as I read novels or biographies is also a passion. I like to experiment with new ideas in interior design and also find it both fun and challenging trying to master the art of food styling and photography.
During the day I have a great job at the best direct marketing agency in Seattle. Cooking and photography have pretty much been relegated to evenings and weekends, and when possible I combine my two favorite passions of great food and travel into one adventure. My blog is titled Canapes and Chocolate as I think the best parts of a great meal are the appetizer and dessert – but in between rates high on my list too!
This blog was created in January 2012, and I welcome all comments in an effort to improve the site and also determine what is most interesting to my readers. Please take a look around and I hope you enjoy the site. Feel free to comment, or you can send me an email at canapesandchocolate(at)gmail(dot)com.
