Get to know me better
I am a chef/cooking teacher/caterer/author with over 20 years experience.
I am a chef, cooking instructor, caterer, author and until December 2016 a restaurant owner. I have over 20 years experience and my background qualifies me to specialize in Asian cuisines, although I am also expert in French, Italian, and most European cuisines, many of which I have taught. As a founding member of the James Beard Foundation, I cooked many fundraisers at the House in the early years,
and have hosted a table at Chefs and Champagne in the Hamptons,
I work on the East End of Long Island and New York City and have no problem traveling within the tri-state area.
For me, cooking is...
my passion and a lifestyle as well as a livelihood.
I learned to cook at...
I am self taught but have cooked and studied with such luminaries as James Beard, Marcella Hazan, Julia Child, Jacques Pepin - all household names.
A role model in the kitchen is...
Julia Child and Marcella Hazan both of whom I knew well.
A cooking secret...
I believe food should taste good and begin with the best and freshest ingredients staying local and seasonal and starting from scratch.
