Q: What do you enjoy most about working at Windsor?
A: The residents. I really enjoy interacting with our residents, it is my favorite part of the day.
Q: How would you describe your cooking style?
A: I tend to be somewhat of a minimalist in the kitchen. I am not big on using ingredients and garnishes just to dress up a dish, because I truly feel that food that is well prepared and well thought out should stand out on its own and speak for itself.
Q: What would you say is your favorite specialty in the kitchen?
A: I very much enjoy working with ingredients that mesh together to create something delicious. I love braised dishes. These dishes take a long time to cook, absorbing flavors from the liquid they are cooked in. The ingredients interact with one another to create something flavorful.
Q: Do you have any favorite dishes to make at home?
A: I like to keep it simple. I use the grill a lot when I am at home. More recently I have been experimenting with smoking various foods like ribs, briskets or steaks. It is so simple to add a smokebox to your existing grill and infuse foods with the flavors of applewood, hickory and other fragrant woods.
