Bay Bites Q&A

What inspires you?
    The greatest menu inspirations for me come from local produce and meats. I love traveling to farms, buying fresh items and then going back to the kitchen to create something new (see recipe).

What’s your culinary background?
    I have a culinary arts degree from Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island.

Where do you eat on a night off?
    Dine in. I enjoy teaching my wife the tricks of the trade.

Where do you eat on a night out?
    Woodberry Kitchen in Baltimore. They have great local food and drinks.

Outside of work, what do you do for fun?
    I love to run, I am a big basketball and football fan, and I enjoy dinner out with friends.

What’s new?
    Honey’s Harvest is now serving Homebaked Italian Bread Pizza not only on Fridays but also Saturdays from 11am to 8pm.
