Martha has had a passion for food forever. One of her first great ventures was attempting Baked Alaska at the age of 10. There was just one little problem…she didn’t read the directions that said the ice cream should be left in the freezer until time to assemble. As a result, the family had Baked Alaska soup and enjoyed it thoroughly. Later she was asked to make cheesecake for a restaurant in Bend, Oregon which was billed as Aunt Martha’s cheesecake. And so it goes…on and on.
Martha is fascinated with the look, the textures, the smell, the taste and the conviviality of great food. Her greatest pleasure is to create something for an appreciative gathering and to watch their faces as they sample the treat.
