It was on my family farm in the heart of Oregon's Willamette Valley where I developed a love for cooking and the value of good food. Home grown, fresh, vibrant, good food. As an adult I spent my early years as a civil engineer, but came back to my creative side through encouragement from my husband, family and friends and opened Arome in the spring of 2017. The road goes on forever and the party never ends.
