Crafting a meal means more than just recreating recipes, however. These chapters were created with everything you might choose for an entire dinner, starting with a cocktail, some tapas or appetizers, followed by the first-course salad or soup, a main dish with sides, and finishing off with a homemade dessert. Make all the dishes from a Single Chapter for a themed meal or “craft” a personal one by choosing recipes from all around the Mediterranean.
About A Taste of California
A California chef whose memorable meals range from lively brunches to intimate private dinners in your own home or vacation rental, Chef Robin provides delicious experiences with a rustic Mediterranean style.
Her food-loving beginnings in family restaurants in Washington, D.C. sparked her lifelong passion for cooking. She went on to study classic techniques at the acclaimed Culinary Institute of America in New York, then moved to Los Angeles in 1984 and has followed her cooking path here in California for 35+ years. Through her travels and living abroad, she has fine-tuned her California-Mediterranean cooking style, with an emphasis on spice and flavor.
The author of four local cookbooks celebrating fresh, seasonal California-Mediterranean cuisine, and creator of her signature line of condiments and sauces and salts blends, Chef Robin is sought-after as a food stylist, cooking instructor, and contributor for print and visual media. Surrounded by nature and the scenic beauty of the local mountains, Chef Robin lives contently in an oak-shaded neighborhood in the Ojai Valley in California.
