Hello! Bon Jour! Guten Tag! Hola! Ciao!
"Food should be fun and not feared!" ~abbvn
Welcome and Thank You for stopping by my culinary creation website supporting my cookbooks, pastries, and
brand under Simply Fancy Cuisine (SFC). SFC is a local homemade, gourmet, sweet & savory Farm to Table Patisserie.
I am Angela Brooks-Van Niel, the Culinary Artist behind SFC. Although, I have a Masters
degree it is not in the culinary arts. I have no Cordon Bleu or AI degrees or certifications. But, what I do have is a lifetime of training from: my southern Grandmother (RIP, Mamie), my Kosher
friends, and my Neapolitan & Sicilian neighbors. I have taken what I've learned and coupled that with my own unique & creative palate to create great fare.
My friends & family kept telling me I should write a cookbook, so I finally did:
"Simply Fancy Cuisine: Bringing the World's Cuisine to your Home Plate," is my 1st cookbook. It covers
International Cuisine from Croque Madames to Pavlovas. My second installment to the Simply Fancy Cuisine series is "Just Desserts" and its just that a book filled with
Cakes, Pies, and more DESSERTS!
Both autographed copies of my cookbooks are available for purchase via my online store:
