from my kitchen to yours
hey i'm sam
I’m your typical 26-year-old girl with an insane passion for food and wine. After completing an Intensified Sommelier Training Program at the International Culinary Center of California, I passed my Level II certified exam through the Court of Master Sommeliers. After that, I saw food and wine in a completely different way and all I dream of doing is making delicious pairings and creations. I created my blog to share my journey whether it’s my food recipes, the wine I’m enjoying on a lazy Monday night after work, or my wine tasting event business. I crave delicious food, extraordinary wine, and people who encourage me to share my passion. I hope people can use my blog as an inspiring resource and connect them to the beautiful world of wine.
