Hi there! Welcome To Grape Gravy!

I’m Angela. I am a classically trained chef and lover of all things food, wine, entertaining and travel. I Live in Portland Oregon where life is all about food, micro brews, local wines, nature and did I mention food?!

After graduating from Western Culinary, way back in 1991, I worked in some of Portland’s finest restaurants and hotels. Learning from renowned teachers of the art and finding my own style in the process.

My passion for food and cooking started early on, watching my Mother in the kitchen create a new taste sensation.

Nothing brings me more joy than a gathering of family and friends around the table, eating, drinking, sharing stories and laughter. Lot’s of laughter!

Grape Gravy! is my creative outlet where I can share some of my favorite recipes, new recipes, wine and food pairing tips, restaurant/travel reviews and some fun stories to go along with it.

I hope that these recipes will bring much joy to you and your friends and family.
