About Me

Growing up in a wonderful family of farmers and cooks, I had no choice other than to become a chef. It’s this background that has shaped my career and my cooking philosophy which is Simple ingredients, beautifully prepared.

In addition to creating my own restaurant in my mother’s kitchen when I was six, I cooked and baked in the kitchens of Martha Stewart, Pleasures, of Cooking, Curds and Whey, Campton Place, Wente Winery, and I survived a stint as a manager in the Cellar for Macy’s, New York. Currently I teach a cooking class called Eating Real at Mills College.

In 1986, along with Laura, my business partner, I branched out from my mother’s kitchen and opened up a restaurant /catering company in Oakland, CA. The restaurant closed in 1991 and I continued to cater until 2008. I am often a restaurant judge for the Best Of issue for northern California’s Diablo magazine and a frequent contributor and feature writer for Diablo.
