Food is my passion; it is always on my mind! I cook all the time and love to take pictures of what I make. My cooking, for the most part, is well-balanced and healthy. All my pictures have been taken using my phone's camera. I hope you enjoy...

Penne, garden greens, tomato, aromatics, fennel, chive blossom, and pecorino. #zaineskitchen #pastamama #backyardgarden #farmtotable #vegetarian #cookwithlove #food #yum

Last night’s dinner was a success! Two seatings, 120 per seating, 5 courses including the two spit-roasted lambs behind me, and no hiccups. I love cooking at big events like this, but being able to cook outside in the sun while listening to all the wonderful live performances of Coachella was a special treat. #zaineskitchen #coachella2014 #funinthesun #cookforlife #cookwithlove #food #yum

Only at #Coachella will you stay up till 1am rolling out 20 pounds of #cavatelli and pressing it by hand with a fork because your cavatelli hand crank was faulty.  #intheshit #pasta #oitf2014 #zaineskitchen #cookwithlove #food #yum

My little kitchen buddy tried his best to get me to stay, but I’m Coachella bound! I’m so excited to cook all weekend. I’m especially looking forward to the Outstanding in the Field dinner this Friday! #zaineskitchen #zigthepig #coachella2014 #tupac #californialove #popup #cookwithlove  #food #yum

Here’s another first from the Seder dinner…. Matzo ball soup! I was told it was the best chicken soup they’ve had 😊 #zaineskitchen does #sederdinner #chickensoup #comfortfood #cookwithlove #food #yum

I made my first Seders dinner last night for my clients. This is my spin on the traditional dish of a hardboiled egg dipped in salt water. I’ve topped mine with shaved spring vegetables, cracked black pepper, rosemary oil,  and chive blossoms. #zaineskitchen does #sederdinner #springishere #locallysourced #farmersmarket #organic #eggs #farmtotable #cookwithlove #food #yum

The one and only time you’ll see me in a chef coat is at Pebble Beach Food & Wine. So excited to be here, this place is absolutely beautiful. What an honor it is to be here and cook among some of the most talented chefs out there! #teambestia #zaineskitchen #pebblebeachfoodandwine2014 #cookwithlove #food #yum (at The Inn at Spanish Bay)
