I think one of the best ways to appreciate other cultures is through the local cuisine - squash blossom and huitlacoche quesadillas in San Jose Del Cabo, bacon-wrapped hot dogs in San Francisco's Mission, or jerk snapper on the beach in Ocho Rios. "Tell me what you eat and I will tell you who you are" by Brillat Savarin is one of my favorite quotes. I am a private chef and teach private cooking classes in San Francisco and the surrounding bay area. I'm 49 and have two beautiful kids: Scarlett (who now lives in New York) and my almost grown son, Emerson.
If you're reading this to learn what type of guest I would be, I can only tell you that I'm honest, mature, easy-going and respectful of people's property and I treat people as I would like to be treated.
My motto in life is: Yes!
