Casa Nieve Cooks, LLC is my passion project, creating delicious recipes for the home cook, teaching in-person cooking classes to groups and individuals, and pushing culinary arts to new levels.
How did this all start? At the ripe old age of twelve, having grown tired of Saturday morning cartoons, I tuned in to PBS on KERA13. Before my eyes was the curious and fascinating Julia Child, preparing omelettes on national television. I was entranced by her cooking, being that I had only known how to make cereal and buttered toast at the time. I knew at that moment that I had to master the art of cooking, asked my mother to pick up eggs at the store, and began to learn to cook.

Fast forward to today, I have been cooking for the better part of 30 years, tinkering in the kitchen and creating new recipes from my brimming spice cabinet nearly every week, sharing these recipes with friends, family, and the world.
