20130823_144728Dear Guest,

This avenue of my foreign sojourns is dedicated to my love of food, to the aspirations of my chefdom, to my experiences accrued, to all the curious, hungry, spatula and whisk wielding food-nuts: This adventures for you.
Within are some tales, recipes, blurbs and photos from a culinary world I’ve had the pleasure to encounter on my foreign sojourns. Browse the buffet, loosen your belt and grab a plate- I hope you’re hungry! Here you can sit and relish cooking forays, fill-up on golden recipes and wash it all down with some sudsy alcoholic drink reviews from cocktails, beers and wines across the globe. If you have a taste for cravables and savorables, sweet and strong, exotic or mild, spicy and rich, then your carriage awaits… Follow me as I sharpen my page daily with content and material from my ceaseless treks as an aspiring chef, a gourmand and a friend!

I travelled and took cooking jobs that presented themselves to me and it was during these foreign sojourns that I honed my skills and fueled my lust for life.  First, there was a Greek kitchen in Hawaii, (You’ll find an excerpt about it in my writing, Old Major, and it is in this writting the reason why I am remiss to call the restaurant by name.) a pizza kitchen in San Diego, An Irish pub in Washington DC, called James Hobans,  A personal chef in Dublin and to the last gig as the sous de patisserie and garde manger in Munich, the Free State of Bavaria at Bachmaier Hofbräu; I prepared the typical food of the region there which majorly consisted of rustic meats, brown savory sauces, dumplings and cheeses.

But those are just my adventures on the book! I take every opportunity to create, invent and astonish as this world is my passion.
