About My Gourmet Connection
Created for people who love home cooking, MyGourmetConnection has hundreds of wholesome, flavorful recipes for weeknight meals and special occasions.
Our Food Philosophy
Here at MyGourmetConnection, we think that meals shared with family and friends are one of life's greatest pleasures.
Our aim in creating the website is to inspire our readers to make flavorful, creative food, whether it's for a quick weeknight meal, family dinner or holiday celebration.
We love to cook and believe in serving a wide variety of dishes made with fresh ingredients and focus our recipes on the benefits of enjoying wholesome, real food instead of fad diets and foodie trends.
In our opinion, Julia Child said it best, “everything in moderation, including moderation.”

Who We Are
MyGourmetConnection has a small, but dedicated staff that develops and tests our new recipes, researches articles and provides cooking tips and techniques for our readers. Here's a little bit about who we are.
My name is Lynne Webb, founder of My Gourmet Connection and primary recipe developer.
I come from a long line of fabulous cooks; Hungarian immigrants who had amazingly intuitive cooking skills and an intense dedication to feeding their families wholesome, homemade fare on a daily basis.
My heritage inspired my own enthusiasm for cooking and over the years I've spent much of my spare time researching recipes and experimenting in the kitchen.
In 2012, I translated this passion into a full-time endeavor and began creating and writing recipes to share here on MyGourmetConnection.

My co-editor (and beautiful daughter), Erika Pitera, consults on nearly all my recipe concepts. She tests a large percentage of the finished recipes herself and also serves as our food stylist for more detailed photo shoots.
It helps tremendously to have another person make a dish in their own kitchen with different equipment. Erika is a very creative cook in her own right, and her input is invaluable.
She also works as a multimedia artist and sculptor specializing in one-inch scale miniatures for avid collectors.
Not surprisingly, she has a talent for creating tiny replicas of food and you can see her fabulous work online at The Petite Provisions Co.
