my students a hundred percent for all the
time they're with me. Just let the knife
rock on the board, you see. See my fingers?
There goes a finger."

of England, to the movers and shakers in
Cincinnati, and everyone in between. He has

cooking field. He has taught cooking, been

and been executive chef at two private clubs.

|"One student said to me one time--came back
and he said, chef, I hated your
you were here, but thank you.
And that meant
a lot to me. That means a lot
more to me
than anything else."
