Annapolis, Maryland (PRWEB) May 09, 2013
Just in time for treating Mom for Mothers Day, Annapolis business entrepreneur and resident Monica Maloney Heidler has launched a new cooking blog and website,Monicas Table. In concert with her husband, Steve Heidler, these two foodies have traveled the culinary trails of Europe to bring French, Spanish and Italian-inspired dishes to the tables of America. Cooking classes, in-home cooking parties and gourmet coffee offerings round out the website that celebrates the joy of cooking. Only this time, its cooking together, and this month, cooking for Mom!
This week, her new site offers recipes for a complete Mothers Day brunch, with delicious dishes like Baked Eggs with Lemon Buerre Blanc. (See recipe below.)
Unlike other cooking blogs and websites, Monica began hers with a mission: to teach her husband, Steve, to cook. His apron covered visage appears in caricature on the blog pages, where he writes in tandem with his wife about his culinary adventures. Although admittedly his posts have a masculine feel, focusing as they do on the outdoor grill, red meat, and specialty drinks, its the idea of cooking in tandem that is capturing the imagination of Monicas Tables rapidly growing audience.
Inspiration abounds for ways to celebrate the joys of food and living. From delicious dishes, marvelous menus and terrific table settings to the more nitty-gritty how-tos that puzzle beginning chefs, this new site is brimming with colorful and professional photography.
A side foray into cooking with chef Dorie Greenspan provides another avenue for aspiring French chefs, and there is a chance to do a little baking with her, too.
Monica credits the years she spent wrapped in her grandmothers apron making homemade biscuits and savory soups as the inspiration for the cook she is today. From there, it was trips to Europe, and learning to cook the European way that launched her latest venture.
Traveling abroad and learning the fine art involved in each regions cuisine is what makes Monicas Table special. My food-based travels have taken me to Montepertuso in Italy and Pas du Nord in France this year, says Monica.
You can follow Monica and Steve at http://www.monicastable.com, on Monica’s Facebook page, and their twitter account at @monicastable.
