For years I have had an obsession with food. Beyond simply eating something delicious, I have been fascinated by the process of cooking. The heat, sounds, smells, successes, and failures. To me cooking is meditative. A creative and physical outlet that allows me to relax, focus and explore.
I always knew that I wanted to be a cook, but never felt it was a viable option. While it may be totally cliche, once my wife and I had our daughter all that changed for me. I knew that if I was going to encourage my daughter to chase her dreams I would need to do it myself or I would be a hypocrite. So in the summer of 2017, with the support of my amazing wife and family, I took the leap. I was going to chase my food dream even if I didn’t know totally what that meant or looked like. Since then my life has completely changed for the better, and we are just getting started.
