I’ve been cooking since a very young age and love all things food.  Cooking is my passion, my hobby, and my creative outlet for instant results.  I’m an IT executive in the “real world,” where I run projects that last for months or even years.

With cooking I see immediate results and make adjustments quickly where necessary to correct mistakes.  The best part?  Others enjoy the results of my labor.  My family, and friends all benefit from my cooking which gives me the most gratification.  There are not many hobbies, where other people can enjoy the results more than the hobbyist, but cooking is one of them!

This blog contains articles about the restaurants I visit, recipes of food I cook, and information about cooking techniques which I have learned over the years.  I am not a professional chef, nor have I ever been, but I have worked in restaurants and have experienced the joy and pain associated with the culinary world.  Not that I am in a hurry to return mind you, IT has me fully engaged.

I travel for work and experience cuisine from all over the country and use that experience in my opinions here.  Keep in mind they are just opinions though and your mileage may vary.

Remember, life is too short for bad food!
