I am 15 years old and I am finishing my freshman year of high school at Choate Rosemary Hall, a boarding school in Connecticut. I have 3 brothers, one human (Ross) and two canine (Diego and Jorge, my labradoodles). I am passionate about cooking, play varsity squash, and am serious about my academics. I also play the cello, and I love to travel. I blog about food and words at SATgourmet.com, where I share recipes and review restaurants, cookbooks and cooking products. I am a diehard Italophile and hope to spend some time living in Italy some day. My favorite chefs are Julia Child and Ina Garten. I would like to develop a product line of food... I have some ideas but they have to wait until I finish school!
