After years of working in high end restaurants in New Orleans, Atlanta and Chicago, Chef Peter Martin found himself living in Wisconsin, and working as a foodservice director for a county jail system. While he enjoyed the freedom of finally having weekends and nights off, to spend time with his family, he started to miss the creative aspects of the culinary world. Thus, Onceachef was born. Peter takes a practical, down-home approach to cooking and is a firm believer that anyone can cook wonderful food with just a little guidance. His love of comfort foods is very apparent, though you will find recipes that span the spectrum from simple to complex. Nor is he shy about extolling the virtues of his new home state, Wisconsin, and its rich agricultural and culinary heritage. From barbecue to Indian cuisine, Peter explores it all, and in doing so shares his passion for the foods we eat.
