I hung out in the kitchen with my mother since I was very young. My mother was very happy to put me to work peeling potatoes and carrots for her.
I washed a lot of dishes in restaurants before I was allowed to touch a knife there, and finally I was rewarded with a knife to peel potatoes and carrots. I really wanted to cook, so I went to school through the apprenticeship program.
I graduated from The Northern Alberta Institute Of Technology with Red Seal in 2003.
I work mostly in catering, but do enjoy working occasionally in a care facility for elderly people.
When I'm not in the kitchen I am at my piano, or behind my easel painting.
Art is diverse, such as the art of life.
My cooking tragedies
When I was about eleven I made several dozen jars of blackberry jam and they all turned wonderful shades of green, orange and purple over time on the shelves in the basement. So was created the Tale of "Tony's Toe-jam" - now a traditional family memory.
