There is no one like Pam, and there is NOTHING like her food. You can literally taste the love she adds to every meal. We have done house events with her, gone to Chef's table for special occasions, and signed up many weeks with the meal delivery, and her classes are legendary. Take a class, or have Chef come and cook for... you can thank me later! Truly a California culinary dream weaver.
