About this Cook
Recently retired after 22 yrs behind the line. Worked as cook and then chef in many restaurants in N. Calif., moved to Oregon to teach at CC. Live on small farmstead in small valley in foothills of the Cascades near Eugene. Raise high percentage of my own food organically.
My favorite things to cook
My cooking tragedies
In restaurants, bacon is baked off in the oven on large sheetpans. Since cooks tend to be doing about a thousand things at any one time, the bacon, hidden in the oven, is often only remembered when you smell it burning, or worse, when Chef smells it burning. When I was a prep cook my knickname became "Oh, s--t!", my exclamation whenever I burned a pan. That knickname stuck with me for years.
