Chef TommChef Instructor of Culinary SecretsUnique SpecialtyOne of the unique specialties I have is making things from scratch. I can take cocoa beans and turn them into chocolate!Other PassionsOne of my passions is creating rich, wholesome foods from absolute scratch. Website
I bring over 25 years of practical, real world experience directly to you in the convenience of your own home, or where ever you may be. Having spent 15 years working in restaurants and 13 years teaching tomorrow’s chefs at culinary institutes on the east and west coasts, I’ve collected a vast array of skills and techniques that I’m now here to share with you. I’ve been a Chef Instructor at culinary institutes from the east coast to the west for the past thirteen years. Whenever I’ve found an opportunity to learn and master the ‘old world’ method of making something, I go ‘all in’! I can make, and teach you to make, a wide variety of things you might never consider trying to make otherwise. At any given time, you might find me making fresh cheeses from raw milk and live cultures, or rich, delicious chocolate starting with the cocoa beans themselves. I also love curing and smoking all kinds of meats and sausages. Nothing beats a homemade slab of smoked bacon or a complex, dried Tuscan salami! And have you watched my Chinese Hand Pulled Noodles show yet? Now, that’s one of my favorites!READ FULL BIO
