“You learn a lot about someone when you share a meal together.”Anthony Bourdain
Anthony, my dear friend and one of the world’s most esteemed chefs, is absolutely right. The one commonality that brings people together is food. Sharing a meal stirs up memories and stories flow over a glass of wine or cold mug of beer. From rice dishes, stews, barbeque, pastries, bread, and grilling techniques, to the small family stores and big supermarkets, there is a story to be told. In this blog and in my podcasts, I share with you my culinary experiences, cultural cuisine, travel, tools of the trade, and whatever adventures come my way.
I bring you stories from the plains of Africa, the fields of Asia, spices of South America and the Island fare of the Caribbean, to the markets of Europe and the unique pockets of culture throughout the US. Whether you’re a traveler, foodie, professional chef, or a lover of stories and adventure, I hope you enjoy my blog and my podcasts.
