My name is Catherine Chapman, and I am a first year Environmental Engineering major with a minor in Spanish. I am from Peachtree City, Georgia which is about thirty five minutes south of Atlanta. I have a large list of favorite foods, but overall, I must pick Nutella gelato as my personal favorite. My family travels frequently, and gelato reminds me of fond memories of various trips I’ve taken throughout Europe. I also enjoy making this recipe because it comes from one of my favorite chefs on the Food Network, Giada de Laurentiis. The act of making it also reminds me of family gatherings where my uncle always tried to make his “famous” ice cream and always comically failed to remember an essential ingredient like sugar.
I really enjoy watching cooking shows and cooking. Some of my favorite shows are The Barefoot Contessa, Good Eats, and Ace of Cakes. I am extremely excited for this class, and I hope the semester proves to be very enlightening!
