The BLVD KITCHEN in Sherman Oaks, CA is my home away from home. The brainchild of Sharon Graves, BLVD Kitchen is a hybrid of retail (highlighting the works of local craftspeople), commercial kitchen, and entertainment space. I've been there since the beginning - making artisan soups, sauces and breads under my KIDDOC brand, teaching culinary classes, and helping with events. I wanted to be able to share what we do at BLVD, as my peeps there are very special, inspired, talented, and fun. And boy, do we have FUN!
