Jennifer McGavin spent 11 years in Germany, which allowed her to develop a large repertoire of German specialties and understand their cooking culture. She is very interested in "Vollwertkost", or healthy foods, and regional specialties, learning how to make apple strudel, dumplings, and many other traditional foods. Her mother-in-law, an old-school German lady, was instrumental in understanding many of the traditions surrounding the table.
