More about Carrie
When did you first get interested in cooking?
My first memories of cooking were baking cupcakes for my art class in elementary school. I began baking and decorating cupcakes all the time and giving them to my brother to take to school as well.
What type of foods do you most enjoy making? And eating?
As much as I love baked goods, I really enjoy working with any kind of local produce. It is so amazing to live so close to such an abundance of agriculture in our state. I try to highlight that in my cooking as much as possible.
Who has been your biggest culinary inspiration or muse?
I think all the Chef Instructors at Seattle Central College created such a positive and accessible learning environment and I learned so much from each of them.
What do you love most about your job?
All the amazing places it takes me!
If you were not a chef, what would be your dream occupation?
Fun fact about you:
My favorite ice cream flavor is vanilla!
