Good times one and all! Just call me "TheBeef". I figured now that things have slowed down for me I should start being a part of a community of people who have a similar passion for cooking as I do.
A little about myself: I have been a head chef for years at various fine dinning places throughout Beverly Hills and the coastal Los Angeles area (Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, etc.) Now that I am slowly unwinding from full time work (gettin' old) I cook for the rich denizens up in the rich areas around where I live (Palos Verdes and Beverly HIlls). I also train people at the places I used to be head chef at as my focus was mostly on meats and cooking the finer cuts. b^^
Anyway, if you can handle my unorthodox mannerisms and have any questions about various ingredients, recipes I'll gladly share them. :) But being part of a cooking community sounded like fun and I hope I get to share and continue to learn through other various chefs (Pro and home). b^^
