Some people eat to live, I live to eat. Father of four Husband of one. Financial Planner by day.Kooky Chef by night. For fun,I am a Rep soccer coach and part-time professional magician. My father was from Russia, mom was from China, brother is from Israel. Growing up in this food oriented Jewish family I developed a love for food from all over the world. Not afraid to try anything, I have sampled delicacies from all over the globe right on my doorstep (thats the benefit of living in Toronto).Followed in Dad's footsteps. Started cooking at age 5(scrambled eggs)baking at age 10. Today, I try to create symphonies of foods and plan all aspects of my dinner menus to coalesce on a particular fragrance or taste theme. I think that's why my wife married me. Fav cookbook. "Europe's Master Chefs" and "100 years of Jewish Cooking in America."
