April 29, 2020 Chef Neelah

So hey, Welcome! This is my blog, Brew & Brulee’. This Post has been in the works for years and I’ve finally worked up the courage to do it, so be nice!  This is my first official post so i guess i should introduce myself. My name is Neelah; I am a chef, a baker, a wife, a mom, a food enthusiast, a crafter, an artist, an avid reader… and so many other things too, lol. I always found that “tell me about yourself” question every semester or new job intimidating because there’s so much! What do I say? What do I not say? Am I weird? Probably, but who isn’t? Anyway I have been meaning to start a blog for like 6 years now and I have always been hesitant because who wants to hear what I have to say? But apparently that isn’t the point so…here we are. 

In case you were wondering what I look like…

You may be asking “Brew & Brulee?” .  These are two of my favorite words in the English language. Brew because a well brewed cup of tea is heavenly, and can turn a bad day into a good one. Trust me, you’ll see. And Brulee because its my favorite cooking technique; who doesn’t love a beautifully caramel crunchy crust on sweets? As you can probably tell by now this blog will be about food. Lots and lots of food. Food preparation, food /product reviews, recipes, my career in food. It will be about Tea! Blending, brewing, infusing, tasting; all the fun things! But it will also be about the importance of good quality ingredients and knowing what is in our food;, a segment we will call ” …and natural flavors” ( I know soapbox…won’t be on it very often , I promise). It’ll also sometimes (probably rarely, unless you guys wanna know) be about being a married millennial, motherhood, and all the other new adventures that  may take me on.  I hope you decide to take this journey with me. I think this will be fun! There are so many things I want to explore with you!
