Lori’s paternal grandmother, “Nanny Marge” also taught her to cook. In spite of her Italian heritage, Nanny Marge perfected brisket, potato latkes and an endless array of foods she learned to prepare to please her husband and his family, émigrés from Russia.
Now, with a family of her own, Lori calls Southern California home. It gives her tremendous joy to share her love of cooking with her family and friends. Cooking lessons for Lori began as a way to inspire friends to cook some of her favorite dishes and instill confidence in the busy home chef.
Lori received her culinary training at the New School of Cooking in Culver City, CA. Prior to her cooking profession, Lori was a management consultant in the financial services sector of KPMG, a global professional service company. She is also a graduate of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
