I learned so much from Chef Joan and was so impressed by her wide range of expertise. She's also really wonderful with pairing flavors in unexpected ways, like putting vanilla beans in a sauce for ravioli. It's really inspiring to spend time with such a creative chef, not to mention she is so down to earth and friendly.
