"I think of myself as a casual, comfortable guy. I truly believe that whether you are eating dinner at a wedding reception or picnicking in the back yard, the food that is produced should wrap you up, bring back wonderful memories or create new tantalizing ones. Food should be a desire and not a function".
When he gets a breather from the hustle and the bustle of culinary world he is gardening at home growing wonderful vegetables that he prepares with his wife Krissa and children Emma & Max, inspiring another generation of food lovers.
