About Carole Lassak

A jetsetter for ancient times, Carole enjoys traveling abroad to practice the dying art of handmade bobbin lace. The sounds of bobbins pattering against her bobbin pillow fill her home. At home, Carole acts out her fantasy as an Iron Chef challenger. Her favorite food is sushi, especially sea urchin. “I think any piece of raw seafood on a pillow of rice would delight me.”
