About this pro

I have been cooking for over 40 years and have worked for Cal state university SanFrancisco, Crystal river Yacht club Fla, the Royce hotel Pittsburgh Pa.I was the executive chef for inflight catering, to corporate, private and charter jets in Raleigh NC and have cooked for a former president , presidential candidates, Fortune 500 CEOs, professional sports teams, super star musicians, political dignitaries foreign and domestic .

I recently had to quit what I truly loved which was being in a commercial kitchen, but because of a disabling accident I can no longer work on my feet the hours required to be a chef. So I am now passing on those 40+ years of experience to my students.
