I'm Rachel Willen. Some people have a mid-life crisis and buy a new sports car, have an affair, get plastic surgery or find religion. I went to culinary school...at the same time my 19-year-old son did. It was time to follow my life-long passion for great food and good cooking, and I intend to make this "second course" of my life into a sumptuous feast. I hope to inspire, teach and entertain.
