How long have you been working with Big City Chefs?

9+ Years

If I were a spice, I would be…

Kosher salt

My favorite local purveyors, artisans, and farmers:

Front Porch Farm, Flannery Beef, Water2Table, K&J Orchards, Triple T Ranch, Zuckerman’s Farm, County Line Harvest, Laura Chenel, Iacopi Farms, Fiddler’s Green Farm

What I love about cooking and hospitality…

I love teaching people why it matters to buy great ingredients, and how treating those ingredients with care and respect and love, we can make something magical. Showing people just how great a dish can be is a pretty powerful thing, and providing a memorable and special experience for them is just the best. Also, I get to play with knives and fire all day, so that’s cool.

What are your top three go-to pantry items?

Preserved Meyer lemons (homemade from my tree), schmaltz (rendered chicken fat), green garlic (when it’s in season). Great olive oil, also.
