Linda Lou Hamel

Orlando, Florida

Hello, thank you so much for stopping by my little corner of the world.

I'm Linda Lou, a single parent of a beautiful daughter named, Melissa. Melissa is currently continuing her education while living in San Francisco, CA. I reside in Orlando, Fl., in a great neighborhood known as College Park.

I learned how to cook at a very early age both by my mother who was from England and my grandmother who was of Sicilian descent. Both my mom and my grandmother had a major impact on how I approached cooking. Two very different types of cuisine yet both shine through in my recipes.

Living in such a warm climate, I'm lucky enough to be able to grow all my own herbs. I believe using fresh herbs in any recipe really elevates the flavor of the dish.

As often as I can, I take advantage of our farmers' markets, buying local and seasonal ingredients is key to making a great dish.

I've lived in Orlando for many years and watched the culinary industry grow beyond belief. We have great chefs and terrific cuisine all over the state. I'm going to give a peek into the culinary world of two great cities, Orlando and San Francisco.

Let's Dish With Linda Lou is where I share my recipes, my life, and the food tale of two cities.
