Kitchen Classroom

“I love food - - talking about it, shopping for it and especially cooking for myself, loved ones and guests”

I currently teach cooking and work as an off-premise chef with some of New York’s leading caterers, including Abigail Kirsch, Callahan Catering and Miss Reingold Catering. As a Chef Instructor for ShopRite’s Culinary Workshop program, I conduct weekly classes, as well as coordinate special events and develop and test recipes.

I graduated from the Institute of Culinary Education with Highest Honors, I’ve participated in numerous events at the famed James Beard House and have also traveled to Louisiana and Mississippi with the Culinary Corps as part of their charitable post-Katrina clean up and renewal work.

In my previous business life, I was the founder and president of Union Square Group, a leading New York-based theatrical and event production company. I began my business career at the William Morris Agency, rising through the ranks to become an agent working with such artists as Crystal Gale, Barry Manilow, Bill Cosby, Melissa Manchester and Billy Crystal.
