Allison vencel

Allison  Vencel is a self-taught gourmet cook/chef, author and avid cookbook collector  and blogger. As a military spouse, Allison was the editor of the Alconbury  Take-Home News, an informational publication for Air Force spouses at RAF  Alconbury, Cambridgeshire, England. During her travels through Europe, Canada  and most of the States (to include Alaska), Allison became exposed to the  culinary traditions of numerous countries and cultures.  With a Bachelor  of Arts degree in Drama, Allison has had many opportunities to produce  delicacies for many cast and crew members as well as family, friends and  clients. She has spent her life duplicating and creating treats by seeking out  new flavors, budget meals, and cultural food trends.

To  help prepare the feasts Allison creates, she obtains her ingredients via her  love of growing fruits and vegetables in her own organic garden. Outside of  being a foodie, Allison loves to fish, read food books and magazines and  continues her career as the author and food photographer of her cooking  blog:  http://pixiedust-allison.blogspot.com
