Julia’s love for the kitchen started with her grandmother, whose love for food inspired her own! Julia was mesmerized by her grandmother’s skill and creativity in the kitchen––and so her own love affair with food and cooking began. By eight years old, she had my own apron, and she was calling the shots in the kitchen (you know how fiery redheads can be!). Julia is all about creating a combination of what tastes great and makes us feel good, inspiring a happy and healthy life, but don’t get her wrong––cocktails and cheeseburgers can be included.
