About this Cook
I am the Owner / Executive Chef of Whispering Pines Caterers since 1987.Which I run with my Sweetheart, Debbie and my Daughter, Jennifer. I basically grew up in a kitchen, my mom was always cooking or baking something delicious. Mom never bought anything, everthing was home made and it kind of rubbed off on me.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking Italian foods and baking Artesian breads that have been handed down in my family
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas Eve is very special to me I can remember the bounty of Italian specialties, from Seafood Copinno and Antipasto to Stuffed Grape Leaves; Mom and Dad would prepare this huge extensive array of food for my brother Matt and sister Denise and myself, we would eat for hours. This my friends, is something I still carry on to this day.
My cooking triumphs
It's great to see the look on peoples faces when they enjoy the food I've prepared for them. I Love to introduce new and different foods to people.
My cooking tragedies

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
when making potato soup make sure you use a waxy Eastern or red potatoes, always use a potato that is low in starch as the soup will be grainy if you use a starchy potato like Idaho or baking potatoes
