Introducing TDPC – Suzanne

I love food, preparing it, eating it and sharing it with others. There is nothing more enjoyable than getting together with friends and family with  good food and wine. I grew up in a large Italian family, every Sunday was a special occasion, the entire family got together and my Mom and Aunts would prepare an amazing meal. My Grandfather had a small vineyard and made his own wine. He used to take me to the wine cellar to help him fill up a bottle for the meal. I was too young to enjoy wine then but it cemented my love of sharing food and wine with family and friends.

The food I serve is seasonal as much as possible, fresh, organic, sustainable and humane. I am convinced that the food we make and eat has a direct bearing on our health and well being and eating fresh unprocessed food is very important to me and is what I strive to serve daily.

I am a Real Estate agent and I live and work in beautiful historic Brooklyn. I love what I do, it’s fun and affords me the ability to feed my passion for cooking, I think I have always loved being in the kitchen, it’s a creative outlet for me. There is such a feeling of pride and satisfaction when you prepare and serve a meal that is enjoyed by all. My passion for cooking also inspired me to start my blog, “a pug in the kitchen” . My sweet pug Nando is my constant companion and loves his homemade food.

When Margot emailed and asked if I would be interested in participating/collaborating with such a great lineup of talented bloggers I was happy and excited to say YES!  We are all hoping to inspire everyone to gather around the table and enjoy great food and wine and each others company. I love dinner parties and have them often; there is nothing more elegant, comforting and reassuring than getting together with friends and or family to talk, eat, drink and enjoy and I am so happy to be a part of this collective.

Cheers Everyone!!

    Introducing Suzanne of food blog a pug in the kitchen – fresh seasonal organic ingredients, an appreciation for aesthetics, and the joy of sharing love through food, family and closeness are all things I associate with Suzannes blog – warmth shines through her writing, you can imagine that if you were every lucky enough to sit at her table you would be spoiled on a culinary level, have a really interesting conversation that would go long into the night, and if you are lucky maybe cuddled by the Nando the pug too :). Suzanne is a TDPC member – her blog is a must-read – do follow the link to read more about her. Poli

    Thank you so much Suzanne for the insight into yourself and your thoughts on food, eating and life. We really do have a lot in common… though I’m secretly wishing it were me with the Italian grandfather with the small vineyard – how positively lovely! 🙂 M.xx

    Hi Suzanne, Nice to get to know you! it’s an exciting prospect to be collaborating with like minded cooks. I have a bichon frise in my kitchen, but that doesn’t quite roll off the tongue with the ease! 😉

    Cheers Suzanne! It’s a lovely intro and I think this new blog is off to a great start. I agree about cooking being a creative outlet — it can be intensely creative and fulfilling (even if i don’t do much creative cooking any more). Huge hugs to you and Nando. 😀

We'd love to hear your thoughts...
