Hi There! I’m Angela, welcome to my site. I am a huge fan 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, 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 creating a new taste sensation. Clipping recipes out of magazines and creating her own “cookbooks” with them. I seem to have inherited this gene as well! So many recipes! 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. And have a place to store all of those recipes that I have been clipping! I hope that these recipes will bring much joy to you and your friends and family. Cheers!
