I am Chef Mireille and have been writing this blog since 2007. I have a diverse professional background working in both media//special events planning and as a freelance culinary professional.
My freelance work includes personal chef servinces, culinary classes and food/travel journalist.
I specialize in global cuisines so you will encounter foods from all over the world on this site. If you have problems locating ingredients, email me and I can refer you to sources in the NY area or online sources, if you are not local.
For my professional services, please contact me at islandpalate(at)gmail(dot)com
I cook. I eat. I dine. I travel. I write. I teach.
Hope you like my recipes and literary meanderings posted here!
