Unlike most children, I never tired of making mashed potato volcanos. Now, food is my medium — I’m a hot dog sculptor, a sausage log cabin builder, and a fruit monkey maker; my Xmas cards featured a salami-based angel with ham wings. My affection for the color red and my tendency toward the macabre often result in mayhem on the plate. As you might imagine, I tend to spend a lot of time in my kitchen laughing and wondering what the neighbors might think. This blog is my attempt to share my creations and perhaps inspire other people to also play with their food.
