Kent and CherylAnn found each other in February of 2012 and instantly connected over their shared love of family, hospitality, music, travel, and food. Their home’s new “Dream Kitchen,” is for the purposes of entertaining. Here they share their passion for high-quality, local ingredients and extreme hospitality! They love the art and feel of cooking. Their hope is that anyone can become more comfortable and confident in the kitchen, so as to better improvise and cook from the heart.
