About me...                                                                       
Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Elyse and I am a recent college graduate. Although I have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology I was never 100% convinced that Psychology was the correct path for me to travel down. Being Italian, I have always had a natural love of food and pastry but never believed I could facilitate a career out of that love. However, I decided that it would be better to take a risk and explore a career in the culinary world. Using my creative ability I was determined to begin a specialty cake business - and Slipper City Cakes was born! Now with the cake business beginning to blossom, my goal is to not only become a successful cake decorator (and someday make a cake for both Aerosmith and Adam Sandler :P), but to share my own recipes and dining experiences with the world. With that in mind, this blog will explore not only the confectionary world, but the world of travel and cuisine since I am always up for trying new cultural dishes. I hope you enjoy!

More about this blog...
The Cultural Dish's aim is to illustrate that you do not have to travel the globe in order to experience the deliciousness that the world has to offer. An array of recipes and pictures from my own traveling and culinary experience will be utilized on this page. Additionally, for those living in New England, this blog will also help to enlighten you on where to find a tasty Cultural Dish in your own backyard!
