From Bankhead to the Biltmore my culinary career has been an unimaginable journey. Through alleys and boardrooms my quest for food has taken me from Hunter's Point to Ponte Vecchio great food has been my holy grail. In my best life, I lecture on the effects of great food and great living to high regard. My books reach and teach millions and thanks must be due to my life guides, my parents. It is with their desire to create a brilliant force within this lifetime that my life has taken form. I live each day with desire to better than I ever was if only through expanding my realm of knowledge. It's a blessing to live and grow in this dispensation. I am so gracious for the opportunity.
