Welcome to Chez LaRae.  I am LaRae and am a self-taught baker and cook.  Born in South Korea and raised in Minneapolis, MN by parents with Norwegian roots.  I grew up baking and cooking on the weekends with my grandmother at her dairy farm.  I currently reside in Portland, Oregon.

A lot of my creations have homey, informal vibes with an international influence from my travels.  I am married, have two sons, Editor at @thefeedfeed, cooking and baking instructor, and recipe developer.
