I am a 36 year old Chef from Scottsdale, Arizona. I am very adventurous when it comes to food....I will try anything once, maybe twice if I think I need to give it another go. I attended Scottsdale Culinary Institute in the early 90's....and later Arizona State University....but I pride myself that I am mostly self taught, which I feel is crucial to being a good cook (testing and trying because you WANT to, not because you're in school and you HAVE to!) All of my recipes are tested and work....I am always open for feedback and any modifications that you have tried out with my recipes as a base. I encourage you to use my recipes as just that....a base....then make them your own ! I would LOVE to hear from any of you, fellow chefs, foodies, beloved culinary friends of mine. Please ask me questions if you have any about my recipes....or any challenges. I'm always eager to help out ! Bon Appetit and remember what Gusteau from Ratatouille said...."ANYONE CAN COOK !"
