Chef Cynthia

For as long as I can remember, cooking has always been part of my life. I grew up in New York in the 1970’s. Born of Irish & German descent; meat and potatoes where always on the menu!
I remember visiting the family’s butcher shop where we ate hot dogs right out of the case. The experience was amazing in so many ways from the sawdust on the floor to watching my grandfather butcher a whole pig with a surgeon’s precision.
The best part was being able to taste so many wonderful German traditions. My mom would always attempt to try to bring home fresh cold cuts like Leberkase, a liver loaf served warm from the oven and thinly sliced, which would never make it home because we couldn’t help ourselves from eating it all!
The fresh black bread…how could one resist!
