Favorite Proof of the Pudding Dish

Cabrales Bleu Cheese on a ginger snap with sliced pear and fig preserves. Coconut shrimp cosmo.

At home I like to cook

I grew up on the Ogeechee River so I love any and all seafood. There is nothing better than catching your dinner or at least knowing it came out of your own back yard!

For fun

Enjoy summer concerts. Chastain, anyone?!

Must see site or location

The Fox Theatre - I am a sucker for musicals, so being able to have such a fabulous theatre so close by with such wonderful productions, is great.

Do what you love and it will never feel like work!

Favorite Proof of the Pudding Dish: The last one I ate, because I can't possibly pick just one.

 

At home I like to cook: My world famous beef stew with my top secret ingredient tiger sauce, did I just say that out loud.

Must see site or location: The Grand Canyon. It is breathtaking!

 

My work philosophy: Give until it hurts and then give some more.

Biscuits! There's nothing quite like waking up to the smell of freshly baked biscuits.

For fun

I love spending time with my husband just relaxing around the house.

Most unusual food request

We were asked to bake a cake for a groom that resembled a Black Labrador Retriever - and we had to make it in the house of the reception! Then, there was a squabble: the bride wanted the cake outside, and the groom wanted the cake inside. We stood holding the 40-pound cake while they decided what to do!

My work philosophy

No excuses and make sure every guest is happy!

"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".
