Mia DiStasi's Profile
I've always baked, first with my mother and then experimenting on my own. Candy-making is a more recent development, though it seems fitting given that some of my fondest childhood memories involve near-daily trips to the candy store with my best friend.
I still have lots to learn, but am having a great time doing this. I am constantly challenged by the finicky nature of chocolate-- it likes to be coaxed-- but I suppose there's a life lesson in there: you just can't rush the great things in life!
I enjoy things that are simple yet elegant, and my creations reflect this. I'm interested in unusual flavor combinations, and like to include herbs when I can. Sometimes I'm inspired by foods I've tried, be they local or international, and other times I'm inspired by what is growing around me.
I also write a food…
