Cooking Philosophy

Seek your best version of whatever you are cooking. If it is a carrot dish, remember who the star is, if you obscure the carrot's flavor, then you have defeated your purpose. Something that has a delicate flavor should be treated delicately. Over powering a dish with excessive spices is not only disrespectful but deprives the dish of its honesty. The first thing that comes to mind when I ponder about Roman food is its over abiding honesty. These dishes are derived by the freshest and finest of ingredients that are prepared with the love and affection of a generous cook.

We build our great cuisine from the work of the master's that came before us. This is how we honor cuisine and the wonderful chefs that paved the way. Learning cuisines from around the world will help you perfect your own cooking no matter what the cuisine's nationality.

On this page, you will find links to my Blog, wine, and dining pages. Right now, I am in between offering Cooking Classes.

My Cookbook

I have a cookbook that I think is outstanding. I have spent a lifetime learning how to eat well and prepare at home a diversity of food from the world's top cuisines. The phrase "variety is the spice of life" may as well be a way of life, at least in the kitchen and on the table. When I consider something to eat, it has to be the best I can make. Fresh ingredients, harmonious flavors, a pleasing appearance are all factors that promote good living and good food.

My cookbook is about food, nutrition, safety, origin of ingredients, cultural implications, where the recipe came from, what and whys that might be special. This book has been a collaborative effort spanning two life times. My mother's cuisine is strongly represented, as she was a prime mover and an exceptional cook. I have also preserved some great dishes that were wonderful from restaurants, bistros, café, or osterias. Many others came from friends who happened to be great chefs. My first love was for Roman cuisine, having lived in Italy for seven years. However, I have always had a love for food from all over the world. You will find my favorite Italian, Spanish, American, Mexican, Chinese, and Thai recipes. You find appetizers to tantalize as well as desserts to temp your every taste. If you bake bread, you have information that will promote quick successes. I have never eaten anywhere that prepares a better turkey dinner than the one to be found in this book. Turkey dinner is a wonderful amalgam of my mother and my recipes. You owe it to yourself to spend the money buying something that I hope you come to treasure.
