Allow me to introduce myself! I am Darci Bos.
Born in what many would call the “American Heartland”, the state of Iowa, which ranks first in the nation in many agricultural categories, to a family rooted deeply in the farming community, from the farm to the table, food has always been an integral part of my upbringing. Though we moved to Virginia for a short bit and eventually settled in Southern California, our roots and where we came from have always been an important part of family get-togethers, holidays, and to be quite honest each and every meal.
As a teenager my desire for fashion translated into Cosmetology school. Most of my 20s were spent working in salons in Southern California where diverse fashion is widely sought after and keeping up with the trends is an absolute must!
It wasn’t until I had a family of my own where cooking and baking landed on my shoulders that the influence of my family’s “Iowan” roots began to show. Most of it started with birthdays and holidays where the typical cakes, cupcakes and other baked goods seemed to be a hit among many which led to a stirring desire to dig deeper into other areas of cooking and culinary creativity.
Being a mom of two beautiful step daughters whom I call my own, Madison & Audra and two gifts who challenge me everyday, Jack & Ann, has made me want to go after my dreams and passions so much more, so I am here to share this with you. Recipes, contests, family, laughs, and my journey being a cook…
I am now an award winning home cook and all around foodie. With a combination of creative pairings and the desire to blend traditional dishes with a fresh new approach I have won over the taste buds of many in the food sport industry and continue to land placements in national competitions worldwide. My now wide variety of self taught skill and ability to cook, bake, barbecue and grill in any category have fueled a passion to create dishes and recipes that will not only stand the test of time but also prove that a commitment to excellence can take a home cook from the kitchen to the largest stages in the industry.
