About Me

Welcome! My name is Laurie Gorecki. I’m married, and I love to cook and host gatherings for friends and family. Recently, I’ve been experimenting with recipes that replace starchy carbs with vegetables. I believe it is possible to serve delicious, satisfying foods that are also healthy.

Though I grew up in Chicago, I have lived in Washington, DC, and Los Angeles, CA, before returning home. I traveled extensively, enjoying cuisine from all over the U.S. and 13 other countries, including Australia, Italy, Poland, and Scandinavia.

I gained an appreciation for cooking and fine dining while working for a restaurant industry publication in Los Angeles, where I attended events in multiple cities, met famous chefs, and sampled their creations.
