The heart of our home lies within the kitchen.
For us, it is so much more than a place where meals are created; it is where memories are made over meals that are meant to be shared.
It was from this belief that Living the Gourmet was born.
Think of all the fine details and elements that go into creating the perfect family meal. That is the very essence of LTG.
Every gathering centers around the table. Suffice to say, it takes more than just fresh ingredients to formulate the perfect meal. We mix together quality and care, and sprinkle each serving with love. Our recipes are tried and true, from our table to yours.
Catherine Cappiello Pappas is a recipe developer and founder of Living the Gourmet. With the help and encouragement of her son and daughter, Catherine decided to start a blog in October of 2008, with the purpose of passing down her recipes to her children. Since then, LTG has grown into a popular food site with an active and growing community of like-minded food enthusiasts.
Having grown up in a traditional Italian home, food and family have always been an important part of Catherine’s life. It is this idea and core belief that Catherine conveys through her recipes and musings.
Whether you are a veteran homecook, or someone who has never touched a serving spoon in your life and is just starting to find your way into the kitchen – there is something here for everyone. Each recipe is tailored for home-cooking.
In her spare time, Catherine enjoys music, reading and writing. She often shares her writings on her secondary page, The Galley.
Tammy Pappas often contributes recipes (both sweet and savory) to LTG, and is, as well, the head photographer and chief digital assistant here. Her passion and love for baking started at an early age. Encouraged by her mother, she cultivated her talents and love for all things sweet and began sharing her own unique take on LTG.
When not in the kitchen, Tammy pens her own personal blog Urban Kinfolk where she shares thoughtful anecdotes on life, art, and style.
Michael Pappas heads all major product reviews and interviews for LTG. He is the source behind the creative process for LTG’s original series, Midnight Musings which has now moved over to a platform of it’s own on Tumblr.
Michael is a marketing assistant and regular content contributor sharing his thoughts and experiences, as well as broadening LTG with his knowledge and love for fine wine.
