Divorced father of 2...I love cooking and entertaining, I've been a member here at the Zaar for about 2 years now. In my spare time i love spending time with my kids, cooking, scuba diving, fitness and hunting & fishing. I've worked in the beer business for many years now. My brother and I also own a small construction company. We're looking at doing some internet business ventures also. My favorite cookbook is a regional italian cookbook called "Wining & Dining with John Grisanti". Passions other than my hobbies include Oakland Raider football, St. Louis Cardinal baseball and my "Monday Night Supper Club" where about 10-12 of my friends & I gather to eat, drink & be merry. My deceased grandmother inspired me to cook a few years ago because I felt cooking was going to be a lost art. Hopefully that is changing, with the help of Recipezaar.com and Food Network.
