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.
