He is definitely a great chef!!!

As for me, when the voice on the loud-speaker asks, "Do you want fries with that," I just say, "Yes!" LOL No, I am a home chef. I was really sick for a month, and then we were on vacation for over a month, so I kind of got away from it for awhile, but I am happily getting back into swing of things in the kitchen.

For a little over 30 years now I have cooked professionally for money.

I am trained and certified as a chef. However, I really don't like that term. I love to cook, whether I get paid for it or am doing it for friends and family. Food is number one a passion and I will continue creating until it no longer is one...but I don't see that happening any day soon.
