I sometimes like to think of myself as an Uber-omnivore. My early years were spent enjoying delicious Mexican and TexMex food from my birth town of ElPaso,Tx and my teenage years were spent with all the great food Southwest Louisiana had to offer. I believe these and other influences have helped to shape my love for good food. Pictured above: my wife (CourmetMamma) and I enjoying our honeymoon dinner at Victoria and Albert’s in the Walt Disney Grand Floridian Hotel. This is the legendary Chef’s table (located in the kitchen) and to the left is Chef Scott Hunnel, who had joined us for the Chef’s Toast. My Chinese friends like the fact I'll eat just about anything (hold the pickled intestines), so eating out in China is always an adventure. My Japanese friends told me that I must have been Japanese in a previous life on account of how I hold my chop-sticks. I am a Systems Software Engineer for Hewlett-Packard and spend most of my spare time paying attention to my wife (GourmetMamma) and helping raise our two boys. My first job was boiling crawfish and flipping burgers for an ex army cook that had a love for good food and I think that is where I learned some basic principles to what good cooking was all about. Having spent a significant portion of my life growing up in Southwest Louisiana, I have always had a love for food with great flavor.
