Q_MAN'S MENTOR PROFILE
My Pork Corner
Why I want to be mentor in this category:
I really like to let people understand a recipe is just an outline, cooking is all about you!
What inspires me in this category:
Low and slow...BBQ takes patience
I spent 30 years in kitchens accross the NW. I was an Executive chef for 10 years. I really like fire.
Biggest Lesson Learned:
Patience, gotta have it...the lack of it can ruin a great meal. It's not just high heat or no heat...use the whole dial!
Books, classes, teachers that have helped me:
Experience...I love to do it...messed it up, threw it away and started over...until I got it right.
Education, Awards, Pro Experience:
I was Chef at Arnies Northshore restaurant, I was Executive Chef of the Metropolitan Grill in Seattle, WA...one of the top ten steakhouses in the country
- If you don't gill your Portabello mushromms before sauteing...they will turn your sauce black.
- Wallnuts turn your sauce purple!
- Refrigerate your onions before chopping and you will not cry!
- Peel your garlic before refrigerating or the skins will absorb moisture and turn the cloves mushy.
