About urbanfoodguy

I'm a self taught cook with a dedication to buying and eating food that is as humanely and sustainably raised as possible. Which is why in addition to recipes you will see a lot of environmental/political reporting here. I started cooking when I was about 6, it's something I always loved to do. Watching Graham Kerr - aka "The Galloping Gourmet" - was what got me started and I have never really looked back. Over the years I've been a private chef, a caterer, and a food stylist for magazines such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network on the Bobby Flay and Paula Deen shows. Now I work at home in my kitchen sharing with you here recipes that I create or that other people have created that inspire me and I think you will like. I love my neighborhood (the Lower East Side of Manhattan) and I love to travel. Because NYC is such a big place I tend to focus mostly on my 'hood and the ones that are close by: The East Village, Bowery, Chinatown and Williamsburg. My love of travel has no limits really, I'm always ready to get on a plane. I was lucky enough to have a business for many years that allowed me to spend a lot of time in South East Asia. These days I've been spending time in Mexico, Germany, Canada and the West Coast of the U.S., but check back you never know where I might end up. I do consulting, cooking classes, and freelance lifestyle writing so if you are interested please send me a note:

    I absolutely love this blog! I starting cooking young as well due to parents working in the 60’s. Since I’ve worked for food companies in CA, did classes from Bay Area chefs and international chefs and started producing my own creative products and at home events As time went on and a move to GA, I began a catering career that helped me raise two sons on my own, using the CA style and organic tastes acquired. Since then, I’ve relocated to IN . With sons raised and 12 years of living here my attention is paid towards the organic garden on the property. Whatever is fresh and seasonal is my inspiration. I find the pears on the tree or the cilantro that needs to be used for meal ideas. This is my fortune. Thanks for putting your knowledge out there for others to see.
