A Chef’s Daughter is Ivete Tecedor’s cooking blog. If you’re a knitter, you may already know Ivete from her long-time knitting blog, Knotology, and her knitting patterns.

Random stuff about Ivete:

  1. Puppy-mom to Arnold, my miniature dachshund (you’ll be seeing him around these parts for sure!)
  2. My Dad is a professional chef. He’s been doing Technical cooking for my whole life, but he used to own a restaurant and taught in a culinary school. I grew up eating better at home than any of my friends did, and all my HS friends fondly recall the tasty dinners they had at my house (honest!).
  3. Food blogging is apparently genetic, as my Dad blogs here for his employer. And yes, that’s him in the header!

And, since this is a cooking blog after all:

Favorite Foods:

  • Potatoes, preferably fried
  • Potato chips (yes, that’s different. Whether it’s a “food” is still up for discussion.)
  • Mushrooms
  • Bread
  • Lentil soup
  • My Dad’s home cooking
  • Falafel

Foods you’ll never see featured on this blog:

  • Licorice
  • Ethiopian food (it’s the texture, I can’t do it)

This site wouldn’t be possible without the wonderful resources I’ve found online over the years. Here are a few of my favorites:
