Love and Confections: Do What You Love & Love What You Do...

Do What You Love & Love What You Do...

My name is Terri and I'm studying to become a Pastry Chef.

Professional chefs don't run in the family. I didn't grow up knowing I would make a career out of it. I just have a love of food. My family is Italian. We all love to cook and the kitchen really is the center of activity in the house - it might even be the biggest room, too. The kitchen is home. It is honestly where most of my favorite memories originate.

"When someone shares something of value with you, and you benefit from it, you have a moral obligation to share it with others."

I honestly believe in this quote. I've learned so much from being in my family's kitchen, the kitchen at school, and various other kitchens I've visited, that I want to be able to share what I have benefited from.

I like making people happy, and if I can make at least one person happy from something I've created as a chef, then it's all worth it.

Until next time,
Love & Confections
