Introduction I first understood the meaning of great food in 1977 while living in France where I cooked for a French family. Using Julia Child's 'Mastering The Art of French Cooking' I learned to cook a la francaise. Since those early days I have worked in such restaurants as Jeremiah Tower's Stars in San Francisco, the Santa Fe Bar & Grill in Berkeley, Brendan Walsh's Arizona 206 in New York, and Restaurant Muse in Los Angeles. I was also a cheese buyer at San Francisco's famed Oakville Grocery, as well as the DDL Foodshow in New York. I recently decided to write about my career, experiences and travels in the food world. I currently live in Los Angeles where I am also at work on my first novel.
