I want to be clear about something: I am NOT a chef; and, quite frankly, I don't want to be one.
Don't get me wrong, I have immense respect for chefs. I think of them as artists using food as their canvas. I love watching them perform their craft. And, I'm not ashamed to admit, that I wholeheartedly consider myself a celebrity chef groupie.
But, I am not a chef. I have never attended culinary school, and I have never worked in a restaurant. I am just a guy who has always loved to cook and loved to feed others.
I didn't learn to cook in a classroom or from a book. I learned to cook by watching my mother, and through years of family gatherings making tomato sauce, sausages, and countless other Italian staples. I learned about the difference that fresh quality ingredients make by tasting the difference between home-grown vegetables, which came from a backyard garden 20 feet from our family kitchen, and vegetables bought at a grocery store after travelling hundreds of miles in the back of a truck.
Does that make me less qualified than a professionally trained chef? Personally, I don't think so; but decide for yourself. Place an order and see what you think. It would be a pleasure to serve you.
