I'm a (mostly) healthy chef
I've worked in restaurant kitchens in New York City and Italy and spent many years executing both large farm-to-table catered events and intimate dinners in the greater Boston area. When I couldn't take the harsh winters any longer I planted roots in Tampa Bay and have been excited to join it's burgeoning culinary scene. Cooking for an array of wonderful private clients and teaching cooking classes allows me to share my passion for bringing beautifully crafted and delicious tasting food to your home, and teaching how you can also be a (mostly) healthy chef. I have lived, cooked, and eaten my way around the world including Italy, Portugal, the Philippines and Singapore. Their amazingly vibrant flavors - while vastly different - share a common denominator: the ingredients are locally sourced, humanely raised, harvested at their peak, and enhanced by the terroir of the place. Thus my cooking philosophy is to start with the best ingredients possible. I buy local, seasonal ingredients whenever I can, and I avoid GMO, chemically laden ingredients as much as possible. I put a healthy spin on mostly everything, but I also know when you just have to go all in. So whether you're craving juicy tomatoes, aged balsamic, and a drizzle of olive oil, or a spread of cheese, salumi, and a bottle of your favorite red, know that you can always feel good about feeding your family and friends whatever I set out on your table.
