About Me

My Experiences


After over thirty years as chef and operating some of the best French kitchen's in America, and starring on PBS and hosting my own Food Network shows, I have found a new passion, writing not only books on Italian food, but novels influenced by my experiences, travels and my wide array of interests and loves.  Here's a secret for you all, I love horror, and soon you will discover just how much I truly love it!
