About Clarissa Cordero

Hi, I'm Clarissa from Huntington Beach, CA, I am an Author, Foodie and self taught "Home Cook" I love to “Dish” when it comes to anything that is food related as it has been a passion of mine from the moment I was able to hold a spatula. I have well over thirty years of experience in cooking, baking, and grilling. I've spent the last five or so years learning to replicate dishes of various cuisines around the world, create new dishes and reboot some of the classics I grew up with. It has been a pleasure sharing with others my passion, ideas, tips, and tricks that will make life in the kitchen fun and a lot easier.
