My name is Paige. I am one part food enthusiast and the other part interior designer. Before I even eat breakfast I am already contemplating what to make for dinner including the dishes and decor. That doesn’t mean it’s over-the-top or complicated. It simply involves cooking a thoughtful meal and creating a warm, welcoming table for friends and family.

Last Ingredient is where I share my latest culinary adventures and design inspiration. I have a degree in interior design and a culinary arts certificate. Work has given me the opportunity to travel the world including three years living in London. I currently reside in Chicago with my handsome husband J., adorable son W. and gray cat S.
