Q: When did you first realize that you wanted to become a chef?

A: Although I have been cooking my entire life with amazing and creative people, I chose a totally different career path from cooking. That all changed about 17 years ago. I met my husband and helped him operate his restaurant every day and discovered my love for this industry and cooking.

Q: Who has inspired you throughout your culinary journey?

A: I was inspired by both of my parents who loved to cook amazing meals and shared their joy of food and cooking with me. As an adult I am in awe of so many chefs. Massismo Bottura and Nancy Silverton are two of my favorites.

The menu changes often at Roam in downtown Eagle. Here’s crab and mango spring rolls with a mango Thai chili pepper dipping sauce.

Q: What’s your favorite spice?

A: Oooh, I love them all! I can’t play favorites with spices. Curry, paprika, chili powder, turmeric … so many amazing flavors and combinations!

Q: Favorite protein?

A: Duck and boar

At Roam, the drinks are designed to go with the dishes on the menu. Try pairing the shrimp and citrus ceviche with local Amaza bread and a strawberry rhubarb martini.

Q: Favorite fruits and veggies?

A: I am obsessed with them all. Anything seasonal is what I focus on.

Q: Name your carb: pasta, potatoes, rice, polenta, etc.?

A: Carbs are wonderful! But I must say that potatoes are the bomb.

Q: What’s your favorite comfort food?

A: My Uncle Johnny’s chicken cacciatore…and cheesy poofs! Yes, I said that.

A: I am honored to serve this community and share my passion for food in a beautiful setting like Eagle. We are happy to be a place where people can gather, eat and laugh and will continue to meet and get to know each and every one of our guests every day.
