"Start where you are.  Use what you have.  Do what you can."  Arthur Ashe

Az You Eat It is my unscripted life in food - grassroots cooking at its finest.  I welcome you into my home and will show you what and I how I cook when I'm not cooking at work.  You don't need a culinary background, expensive ingredients, or fancy tools and equipment to create mouth-watering, crowd-pleasing, high quality food.  These things help but what you need most is already inside you - passion and a willingness to experiment and learn!  I will help you let it out.

Cook how you want to cook.  Eat how you want to eat.  Eat az you eat it!  Enjoy the ride with me and let's have some fun!   

About Me:
I have been cooking professionally for two years, but have over 30 years of experience in the kitchen - most out of passion, some out of necessity.  From early on as a child, I stood at my mom's hip, watching her make dinner. I watched countless hours of cooking shows and read hundreds of cookbooks.  Then, an unfortunate health scare forced my mom to pass the dinner torch to me - and I never looked back.  From then on, cooking took on a different meaning for me.  It became an expression of love.  Through countless hours of practice, successes and failures alike, I have honed my craft to the point where I can make restaurant quality dishes within the comfort of my own home - and yours.

Cooking is beyond food.  To me, good, honest food is made with love, passion, and heart.  It nourishes the soul.  It's not gimmicky or pretentious for its own sake.  It may be simple.  It may be fancy.  But, the beauty of cooking is that it's up to you and what you want it to be.  Cooking is love, soul, passion, education, beauty, art, and culture - the ties that bind us all.  Cooking welcomes us all, regardless of talent level, to share in its splendor at its universal pot luck table.  We all can learn a lot from each other.  I would be honored to learn from you as I hope you learn from me.
