“Do you cook at home?”  “Not on my days off.” One of the most frequent questions I am asked when people find out I am a chef is, “Do you cook at home?”  The answer is no.  Yes, I am the designated cook on holidays I spend with my family (mainly Christmas day), but on my days off, cooking at home doesn’t even enter my mind.  I enjoy ordering out, usually a good slice of pizza.  I also enjoy going out to a new restaurant to see what is being served.  My favorite place to eat is a little sushi restaurant, in Somerville, called Shumi.  Shumi is tucked away in a ...

My recent obsession with charcuterie has turned into a deep passion for sausage making.  Growing up, I always loved cured meats such as pepperoni, sopressata and salami.  I have discovered that I can now make these delicious sausages and the reward of tasting the finished product is unmatched.  The great thing about being a chef is that I can share this reward with all that are interested.  Available on our bar menu is our house-made charcuterie plate.  This plate is my pride and joy.  It has different styles of sausages as well as a prosciutto.

I spent Christmas and the following week in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.  What a beautiful part of the United States.  The wide open landscape, the people, the small downtown; it is totally different than anyplace in the east.  On Christmas Eve Day, my wife and I had lunch at a place called The Wort Inn and sitting next to us were two cowboys.  And when I say cowboys, I mean real cowboys!  Hats, boots and leather chaps! Whenever I travel I always try the local cuisine and meat is the big seller out here.  My favorite restaurant in Jackson is The Snake River Grill, wher...
