A FOOD OBSESSION
TINTON FALLS, JERSEY SHORE, NEW JERSEY, USA
Bio: Born in 1958 to Italian-American parents in Staten Island, NYC, NY I grew up soaking in all the delicious tastes, sounds, and cultures of having all my Grandparents who were born in Southern Italy and Sicily become part of my daily American living. This great mix of cultures helped me form a real bond with good food, traditions, family, friends, local culture and eventually to the stove where I love to recreate the foods of my youth. My high school sweetheart and I have been married since 1982 and we have two awesome girls who were both born in China. My Irish-German-American wife and my heritage form a wonderful melting pot from which I create the dishes I share with you in this blog. In addition to that we love to travel and all those experiences, for my business travel and family travel all find their way onto a very noisy stove top, counter, and oven. It's important to remember your past and heritage and to constantly add to it with new dishes and experiences. Come on my journey with me and I hope you take all of the fun I have and share it with yourself and your friends and family too.
