Found you!

Well, I see a lot of familiar faces here! Nice to see everyone. For those that don't know me, I've been cooking professionally for 18 years now. I currently work the saute station in a fine-dinning restaurant and do catering on the side. I'm interested in food writing, styling and photography as well.

Hi everyone, nice place here!

Nice to meet you MJ and GB! I have not made gumbo before or since that fundraiser, but it was pretty good. Jen made a wonderful cinnamon icecream that day.
