Hi everyone! My name is Linda Monach and I’ve been cooking since I was tall enough to reach the stove. My mom worked full time and my sister and I were enlisted to “get dinner started” on a regular basis. I think I was 12 or 13 the first time I tried a totally new recipe that my mom had never made (a recipe I still make from time to time) – and from there I was hooked. I wish I liked staying up super late and working my ass off and never being home when my husband is home, I would definitely have become a chef if that were the case.
Instead I went to business school and worked my ass off in corporate America for 20 years. In 2010 I had my second child and decided to step out of the race. Now, I focus on what I love – my family and cooking. I don’t have any official credentials, I just cook, eat, and love food. One of my favorite food related movie quotes is from Ratatouille – “anyone can cook, but only the fearless can be great.” I’m still afraid of live lobster and fish heads, but other than that, I’m pretty fearless, you’ll have to be the judge of how great it all turns out.
