Dina Deleasa-Gonsar is born and raised in New Jersey along with a loud Italian family! Dina has appeared alongside them on the E! Networks show Married to Jonas, where, for her, food is synonymous with family and life events. She grew up with Sunday dinner being treated like a weekly holiday. A family dinner is serious business—and perhaps a lost art. Dina’s training comes first and foremost from her mother and grandmother. Along the way she has picked up techniques from various cooking classes from the Institute of Culinary Education and the Ninety Acres Culinary Center. She hopes to inspire home cooks to venture out and aspire to create meals that are the centerpieces for family time and traditions. She is a contributor to EatUp New York, and recently had her first cooking demo on a morning show. She is so excited to share recipes and restaurants with the Jersey Bites community. As evidenced by her blog Dish It Girl, Dina’s versatility allows her to put on some heels and hit up a five-star restaurant, and then chase down a food truck. If you can dish it, you best believe she can eat it! You can also find Dina on her YouTube channel.
