Deb Lynch

Deb began honing her culinary skills at her grandmother’s elbow making homemade noodles, doughnuts and cakes. The love of all things food continued and after college she landed her dream job working on product development, food ingredients and a slew of other experiences with the Pillsbury Doughboy and Jolly Green Giant. She combines her love of travel with searching out cooking schools around the world where she has been known to take classes in languages she doesn’t speak but finds food to be a universal language.

Deb runs a Cooking School in Central Florida and volunteers as a Cooking Instructor with the University of Minnesota Extension. Buttery Brioche is the recipe that brought Deb to Leite’s Culinaria and continues to be a favorite, as well as Instant Pot Pork Pozole, Blueberry Muffins with Sugar Topping, Dry-fried Green Beans, and Slow-Cooker Indian Style Chicken.
