1. How did you become a chef?

Through many years of hard work and dedication. Then I cooked dinner for the chefs I apprenticed under and asked them if I could call myself a chef… They said yes!

2.    Why did you accept to participate in Chef Masters?

Because Kristin Martin forced me too 🙂 

3.    What is your favorite kitchen memory?

Cooking with family and friends and other chefs.

4.    What is your favorite dish to cook?

Anything I grow at my farm from start to finish! 

5.    Do you have a personal connection to Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia?

Yes, one of my good friends and neighborhood family has been coping with the disease for years! It makes me glad we can do our part as chefs to help raise money and hopefully find a cure!
