About me

Introduction Former New Yorker with a lifelong passion for and interest in all things food and drink. Serious cook. Engineer, chef, caterer, food product developer. Serial builder of serious kitchens, foodstores and food-service facilities ranging from cafe and bakery operations to 100,000 sq.ft. supermarkets. Husband and father of two sons - one of whom shares my interest in food. The other seems firmly in the "eat to live" category. Very challenging for me.
