I’ve been in love with food since I took my first bite.
My fondness for eating has grown greater over these past forty-one years.
I entered a professional kitchen at age 14, where garlic and olive oil were the start of every meal. It was there that pasta became my passion, but let’s not forget about pizza, spinach and artichoke dip, or chicken parmesan - all made from scratch.
It was all new to me and I loved learning more with every shift, and learn more I did. From the food to the operation, to teamwork and fun, a restaurant is a place of education. Add books to the equation and I was off on a journey to become the man who’s writing the words you read.
I’ve now worked in over 25 professional kitchens. I’ve boiled down the tips and techniques from each and I want to share them with you. In addition, I am a collector of books. My first still being my favorite; Becoming A Chef.
Combine my time on the line with my passion for the page and you find a system that I've developed to help you Master The Art of Home Cooking.
As with my career, the first ingredient is love.
"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God."
1 Corinthians 10:31
"I'm a firm believer that our moods, attitudes, productivity, and energy levels are tightly tied to the foods we consume."
The body fuels the mind.
Food fuels the body.
Do the math and it's easy to see that we are what we eat.
It's hard to do things for the glory of God when we are consuming garbage.
This relates to food and to everything else in our life. After all, it's what you let in that counts.
Working out is good and eating healthy is important, but the true measure of a man is the quality of his thoughts.
"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things." - Philippians 4:8
A man is what he thinks about all day long.
A woman is the sum of her thoughts.
It's harder than ever to think positive, but you can do it!
Eating well will help!
I'm here to help with both.
