We are adding a new series to the blog called, “This Is How We Do It” or “Kate’s Cooking School”. The second name is definitely more descriptive, but the first one makes usΒ laugh, so that’s what we’ve gone with. πŸ™‚ Having gone to culinary school, Kate is full of all kinds of great food-related information.

Please let us know if there are any techniques or basic recipes that you’d like to learn more about and Kate might write it up for you!
