About me

There aren’t many foods that I don’t like. Except bell peppers.  All of them. The red ones, the green ones, yellow ones, roasted, baked, stuffed. You probably won’t find them in any of my recipes (gumbo being the exception). Other than that, all foods are fair game.

Random Hollyfacts:

  • I appeared on Season 2 of NBC’s Food Fighters (episode 2!), competing against 5 (FIVE!!) professional chefs, including Eric Greenspan!
  • I was a Top 100 finalist for MasterChef Season 6 on Fox, out of 40,000 people.
  • I like my desserts more salty than sweet.
  • I like my hot food hot enough to burn my mouth and my cold food cold enough to burn my mouth. #extremetemperatures
  • My favorite city on earth is Paris.
