After traveling the world, working on farms, writing food reviews, getting published in magazines - both online and print, as well as being mentioned in books - I made my mark in the NYC food industry by cooking with chefs around the globe. I've cooked with chefs Marcus Samuelsson, Carla Hall, David Burke, Chloe Coscarelli, Mario Batali, Michael White, Richard Blaid, Jamie Bissonette, Fabio Viviani, and many, many others that are not pictured. Most recently, I led a catering team for a CBS reality TV show on the Big Island of Hawaii, sending out 500 meals a day for 3 months. Now I'm sharing meals with guests who visit my farm. Please inquire about private chef services directly.
