New York Executive Chef


The discovery of a new dish seems to do more for human happiness than the discovery of a new star.

-Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
ABOUT
​​
I owe it to my Grandmother for shaping my relationship with food and the kitchen at large. The daily labor of maintaining a large family never imposed on her full hearted dedication to preparing our meals with love. She even knew what each of us prefered and went out of her way to satisfy our specific tastes.

We had a small plantation beyond the house and the animal farm ajoined to it did not just nurture us, they made sure to offer a generous plate to whomever knocked on our door. They were always open and anyone that arrived, even unannounced, was warmly welcomed with a special place waiting for them around our table. 

It was like this that I grew up, with the sentiment of love and respect materializing in our everyday meal by means of what first nature made available to us. Today I fondly recall my first classes at the New York Restaurant School, and the beginning of my career as a chef after receiving my certification in Culinary Arts and Baking. 

Times have changed but never for a moment in my heart do I forget the passion for food with which my grandmother brought through our kitchen. With this same love and commitment, I look forward to attending to you and your next event.
