Welcome to my site!

I am a private chef, cookbook author, and culinary instructor. I have spent the past 30 years devoted to the development of local sustainable food systems and the fate of home cooking in America. I hold classes at The Institute of Culinary Education and The Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City.

In Oct 2011, I launched my North Fork Kitchen and Garden Culinary Studio in beautiful South Jamesport.
