My father was born in Naples, Italy and he taught me how to cook when I was very young. I remember standing on my toes as I watched my father saute’ garlic while getting ready to make his great tasting pasta sauce. I joined the Air Force right out of high school and was sent to Japan where I learned to cook Japanese food. Since I was born with a love for noodles, I fit in very well in Japan. They slurped noodles all day and the louder you slurped your noodles the more of a compliment went to the chef.
The more I traveled around the world the more I loved foods from different countries.
Over time my tastes become so diverse that I started experimenting with many of my own original recipes. One of my favorite recipes is one where I combine Thai spices with traditional Italian spices. I stuff a chicken breast with prawns, pesto and Thai spices. Of course, Italian food remains my favorite food and you’ll find many recipes with lots of garlic.
A few years back I won a couple of cooking competitions for the best Pizza and the best Pasta. That really motivated me to make a web-site so I can teach others how to make pizza……..my favorite food.
Blooging is new to me so I will be adding recipes a little at a time. Enjoy my recipes and please let me know how you like them.
