Welcome to my Blog!
My name is Ronit Penso. I am a professional chef, a graduate of New England Culinary Institute, with work experience in diverse aspects of the culinary profession; as an executive chef, inns’ restaurants head chef, private chef and caterer; in a wide range of places, from Israel to Vermont, New York city, the Hamptons – to name but a few. Currently, I work as a private chef, give cooking demos, translate and develop recipes in New York.
On top of working as a hands-on chef, I am also a culinary journalist, cookbook translator, editor and author. My first cookbook – “3 Courses in 30 Minutes”, was published by Modan Publishing House in Israel in 2008. I am now working on my second cookbook.
When I cook, I don’t like to limit myself to any specific theme or ethnic orientation, and the recipes you’ll find here reflect this eclectic approach.
The idea behind this blog is to promote daily cooking from scratch, in a home kitchen. Therefore, the cooking is not done in a professional kitchen, and the photos are not the product of a professional photographer. The emphasis is on detailed recipes and photos of the cooking process. I hope this blog will encourage you to cook more at home and enjoy the process and the results.
I welcome any questions and feedback about this blog. Feel free to contact me* with any questions or for information about my cooking demos, translations or developing recipes.
