Kitchen Advice:
Never stop learning. You can teach a good attitude easier than you can teach a “know it all”

What’s Your Favorite City For Eating?

What’s Always In Your Refrigerator?
Sriracha or some sort of hot sauce

What’s Your Favorite White Wine? Favorite Red?
Sauvignon Blanc, Tannat

What Would Be Your Last Meal?
Tough question but I’m fond of foie gras mousse rolled in black truffle flakes served with warm brioche.

Do You Have A Guilty Food Pleasure?
Reese’s Cups or Chocolate/Peanut butter combo

Do You Have a Secret Ingredient In Your Cooking?
Not necessarily a secret ingredient but I feel acid (lemon juice, vinegar, etc) get overlooked and are just as important as salt when enhancing flavors.

What’s Your Dream Vacation?
Backpack or cross-country food trip through Italy countryside
