I have been a professional chef for about 4 years now. I love to cook, and love the lifestyle of being a chef
My favorite things to cook
I live to cook anything Italian, but I really like to cook whenever and whatever I can, especially using local and seasonal ingrediants.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Saefood for Christmas every year, and what I like to call double whammy durng Thanksgiving. FULL Italian meal first, lasgna, manicotti, macaroni and gravy, then the full "traditional" THanksgiving meal, turkey and all the fixings.
My cooking triumphs
Graduating Culinary school from the CIA
Finally eating the genious food of Thomas Keller at the French Laundry
My cooking tragedies
Being allergic to onions, but still eating them and suffering the consequences.
