About this Cook
I have been in the restaurant industry for over 20 years, was maitre'd at a 4 star 4 diamond hotel where I prepared dishes table side.
My favorite things to cook
Probably chili both Tex Mex and Cincinnati style.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is from the deep south mainly in Charleston, S. Carolina, father from the hills of Ky. With these roots, I feel right at home cooking beans and cornbread, sausage gravy and biscuits, okra soup, black eye beans and rice.
My cooking triumphs
The caesar salad I prepared at the hotel where I worked. It was rated as second only to Windows on the World.
My cooking tragedies
I believe that cooking is an art form. It can conjure feelings and emotions just as a painting.

Cindy's Awesome Clam Chowder
This soup was a huge hit. I also took Cindy's suggestion and made paninis with sourdough, hamd and swiss cheese. Really turned out to be a great dinner. I had to vary the recipe though not by choice. My grocery store didn't cary the leek soup mix so I used fresh leeks, diced and them with the potatoes.
