About this Cook
I love the culinary field, I live it 24 hours a day, read it , watch it and live it. Thirty plus years in commercial kitchens, hotels, country clubs, restaurants, resorts, and finishing in assisted living center. Felt like I could make someone's life a little better as they were entering a new stage in their lives. I wanted to really get more involved with regional cuisines and life styles. So had a wife that let me move around and really get into cooking, living and exploring many areas of the US, southeast, mid-Atlantic and now the great western produce bowl,CA. Now arthritis has taken my hands, knees and shoulder so very limited in my ability to cook, now I cook for her and read recipes and reviews. My advice to all of you who care to read it is; do what you love and you've got to love this to really be great at it, explore every nuance of this craft it is wonderful, you never know if you will be limited later in life, so do it now and enjoy it.
My favorite things to cook
Southwestern, now breads have gotten my attention.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My wife said after putting me through culinary school, she forgot how to cook, which is a shame, she was pretty good. My daughter started her career working with me in TN at 14, she was a little intimidated by the adults so she got out of the business. Now she wants me to help her to open a restaurant in NC.
My cooking triumphs
A seven layer Andes Candy cake.
My cooking tragedies
Only thing that comes to mind is this new bread thing. Though all the mistakes still taste good.
