Say Cheese



"A meal without some cheese is like a beautiful woman with only one eye.”- said the famous gastronome and cookery writer Jean Anthelme Brillat Savarin.

Bitter Sweet Pill

One of the hardest mistakes I ever had to learn was not to over process my food; I think that is the first thing every young chef wants to do and was exactly the reason I failed my CEC with the ACF a very bittersweet moment in my career that would take me years to truly appreciate as a producer of fine cookery such as it may be. So heed my lesson or not, I say to you all save your Roulades, Stuffing’s, and for God’s sake your Mousses for the not so benevolent creatures of the night and let your protein shine with what may soon come to light highlighted with appropriate sauce and such of course. If this doesn't make sense, wait 5 years and reread it.......

Strand chefs sweep S.C. Seafood Challenge

This was such a fun dish to do and so whimsical I couldn't have enjoyed it anymore if I had tried(coffee and doughnuts) was a triumph for all cooks in our area proving that outside the box does work and we are able to strive above the calabash seafood platter after all
