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!

Chef Howard is no stranger to varied cuisines. From Denver, Austin, Dallas, Grand Cayman, Charlotte , Charleston & South Beach he has seen it all.

"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.
