I’m Susan Garcia and I am widely known for extensive blue ribbon baking expertise, exceptional blue ribbon preserves, and the outstanding quality of my delicious creations. I love sharing my blue ribbon baking and home canning knowledge, techniques and tips, and award-winning recipes with home cooks everywhere.
I was the recipient of the Susan B. Langhorne Scholarship for Food Writers at the Symposium for Professional Food Writers in 2011 and the runner up for the 2013 award. I was a Runner up for the David Leite Scholarship offered by the Symposium for Professional Food Writers in 2014 and a Finalist for IACP’s Bert Greene Award, 2016.
I have graduated from THE GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY, Washington, D.C., and hold a master’s degree from LYNCHBURG COLLEGE, Lynchburg, VA and a Bachelor’s degree from BANGALORE UNIVERSITY, Bangalore, India. I feel fortunate for my rich, multicultural education and enjoy giving back to the global community by serving on committees and volunteering for Les Dames d’Escoffier, The International Association of Culinary Professionals, and at my children’s schools in Northern Virginia.
