I was raised up in the restaurant business, My father co-owned and co-managed a independent restaurant called "The Elms Restaurant and Cafeteria" in Erwin, TN . I was born in 1965, and the restaurant was built in 1967. At the age of 12, I was busting tables and by age 16, I was short order cooking. The Elms was sold in 1990 and life as we knew it changed, but I still love to cook,and explore new recipes and combinations.
