I live in Cape Elizabeth, Maine.  A truely great place.  I love to cook, garden, cycle and perform in community theatre (musicals).  I am happily married to my beautiful wife Linda.  We have one son, Craig, who studied at Johnson & Wales and is now a tremendous chef.   He really rocks in the kitchen. 
 
The whole concept of Big Oven is very exciting.  I look forward to sharing more recipes.
Sushi.  Seafood.  Indian.
