Joni will demonstrate how to quickly and easily make fusion tacos and show off a few sauces that really put a fusion spin on things.

About Joni
“I am just a regular gal who loves to cook and bake…ESPECIALLY for friends and family. Self taught, and still learning, I spend most of my spare time in the kitchen. When I am not in the kitchen, I really enjoy knitting, painting, wasting endless hours on the internet, hiking with my husband and the girls, traveling, reading, and most of the other stuff regular gals enjoy. I am currently residing in Orange County, California, but before you go all “Real Housewives of OC” on me, let me tell you that I live in a small cottage, with my tworescue mutts, and my extremely delicious husband, in one of the last rural towns in Southern California.It is in this cottage that I create delicious and cruelty free delicacies for the world to enjoy. Through my food, I hope to help people to understand that it is not necessary to murder or torture another living creature in order to have a tasty supper.”
