Share your talents, background and expertise. Growing up in a single family household is where I began experimenting in the kitchen. From age 13 years old I was working in a bakery scrubbing pots and pans. As years went by I worked in various settings finally scoring my first fine dining job at age 21 at Machus Red Fox- where Hoffa was last seen. Few years later I attended culinary school and became certified through the Michigan Culinary Federation.
