Personal Quote
He who knows what he dosen't know, knows.
After 25 years in the food industry I have done everything from cleaning the warehouse to cutting the fish to loading the trucks, to driving the trucks to selling the products inside and out to purchasing the products localliy and internationally. I've trained chefs, wait staff and other food professionals on various aspects of the industry while always taking "an hour a day" for me to learn something within my industry.
Passion is the driving force in the food industry and if someone doesn't understand that, they need to find a new job.
Years in the Industry

Great Food Site!
This site was created by a friend and his fiance from the ground up and it is fun, entertaining and inspiring.

HST was and is a favorite read and philisophical guru. My friend that turned me on to this site; Steve Paterson, I call Gonzo as his photo was taken at the Hoover Dam and he has a shirt that Hunter would have been proud of. HST share the same barber, but alas I have him beat by 30-40 pounds! Good Food!!!!
