Celebrate with me! Empanadas just won a Gourmand Award for Best Single Subject Cookbook for the USA! The Award ceremony will take place on May 29 in Yantai, China.
I'm both humbled and honored by this award. And so, so, happy!
Writing books is my labor of love. I've always wanted to be a writer. I don't recall a time when I didn't dream to be a published author. Becoming a cookbook author has been a long journey, filled with delicious food, sweet culinary experiments, solitary writing, and shared meals with those I love. It hasn't always been easy, but it has been the most exciting and exhilarating journey and I would not change it for anything.
On the way here, I had many people who told me I was crazy to have this dream. I quietly smiled, and inwardly said "just watch me!" Nevertheless, I've been so blessed because I've also had wonderful, supportive and loving people who have celebrated, cheered me on, and believed in my dream: my darling husband, our bright and beautiful daughters, my agent (and dear friend), extraordinary colleagues, and friends. And let me tell you, the positive always outshines the negative. Dream big, my friends! Dream far and wide, and then some more. Then go for it! I'm cheering for you!
In case you've not been able to see my book, I'm sharing a couple of pages so you can see them here. My book is filled with beautiful photographs and well-tested recipes that work. I hope you'll enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed writing it.
Thank you for sharing in my journey! See you soon.
