Always have fun teaching how to cook

One thing we have in common is everyone likes flavor. Never forget the "Main Product" is the star of the plate. Any additions must complement the main attraction. Enhance but never overwhelm the star. All cuisines demand finesse in preparation.

A Great cook must be passionate about all ingredients not just new and exotic products. He or she must master the techniques and methods of cooking before truly great food can be created.

A great cook must develop his taste to the majority of his guests taste. A person brought up on cajun may not enjoy California fresh but a skilled cook can create a dish that will please both. The cook should have a broad pallet of flavors. It is up to us to please all of our guests! After all that is why we cook
