About Me

                                                                       

My entire career has been in and around the whirling life of the kitchen. All that I write is injected with my experience, both real and imagined, as well as ideas carved from what is happening on, in, and behind the food scene.

                       

Google Docs and Office? No problem. WordPress experience? A good bit. More to learn? For sure. Willing to take the leap and not sacrifice your investment in me. My portfolio is full of industry insight, opinion, product reviews, listicles, and interviews.

                       

My research and reporting acumen is honed, with a nod to engaging the audience for whom the pieces are intended. My initiative positions me to go after sources, work autonomously, and with adherence to deadlines. Further, I engage people in my mosaic of experience as well as sparking a team approach.

                       

If there is anything I can contribute, I won't disappoint you. Many thanks for considering me!

Contenders for the Best Kitchen Notebook

In the kitchen, a notebook is a mass of recipes, tomorrow’s prep list, the seafood order, and infinite ‘note to self’ scribbles. And an archive.

An Uncommonly Common Man: The Interview with Chef John Tesar

In print and online: John Tesar is a maniac. This Top Chef veteran is not a casual kitchen observer or quiet renaissance man. Tesar is outspoken, talented, energized, and just a bit left of center. Talking with Tesar about his connection to charity benefits, there is a lot more to this kitchen hooligan than the jeers that once had him tagged as the “Most Hated Chef in Dallas."

Meet Chef William Hoffman of Hockessin’s House of William and Merry

A short shot from Wilmington’s center city but light-years from the area’s stoggy culinary ancestry, House of William and Merry resonates with an inspired skill that brightens the menu with an amalgam of shareable, expert constructs and jovial jibs on old school and hipster dishes. This is where area chefs bring their chef friends.
