I have worked in several chain restaurants as well as some small indy restaurants in Chicago and Raleigh, NC. I have toured Italian wineries from Rome on north, and spend alot of time in Mexico.
My favorite things to cook
Chicago-style deep dish pizza. When I was a delivery boy for a famous Chicag-style pizza institution, I fell in love with the pizza and plan on opening my own restaurant in Raleigh one day. I also spend time in Mexico high up in the mountains where the main dishes are lamb and bass.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mexican, Hidalgo style cooking. Northern Italian, Philadelphia and Chicago style fast food.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking tragedies
I constantly expirement with pizza dough recipes, and some have been utter failures.
