||<p>Peter got his start in the restaurant business at the ripe old age of 8 years old. "My parents owned a restaurant over which we lived. Oftentimes, if a dishwasher quit, I was drafted into service, at the last minute and during summer vacation I wasnâ€™t allowed to go out and play until after I bussed tables for lunch service, all for high wage of $.25 per hour!" Later in life, Peter tried to avoid the call of the kitchen, bouncing around from college to college and from major to major. Finally, after giving in to the call, he enrolled in New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, VT.</p> <p>Peter considers culinary school to be the start of his "professional" career, though he already had years of experience, working in various aspects of the restaurant business, both in the Front of the House and in the kitchen. From culinary school, he traveled around the US, working in cities such as New Orleans, Atlanta, and Chicago. His most recent move has taken him from the hectic pace of urban life to a more bucolic existence in rural Southeastern Wisconsin, where he spends much of his free time searching out the best local food products available, from handcrafted beers and cheese to organically raised produce and meats. Peter and his wife also belong to one of the local CSA farms, for which he regularly contributes recipes for their weekly newsletter.</p>
