Hi everyone! My name is Arael and I am originally from the heartland of the United States: Cincinnati, Ohio. I grew up cooking every night with my mother and two sisters, and, while none of us were particularly good at it back then, I always loved the social aspect of both cooking and eating. Through college and beyond I have steadily expanded my culinary horizons and sharpened my techniques, as I too have become a mother, and have started sharing my passion with my (very eager) daughters. While I was raised on midwestern cuisine, I've lived in most parts of the country: from Alaska to Florida, New York to California, and many places in between, and learned many things along the way. I'd love to meet you and share cooking and eating experiences with you!
