A hearty fist-pump and shout-out to the CIA (that’s the Culinary Institute of America) for training a chef so exquisitely that he could make every single morsel that passed my lips this past week one of the more delightful that I’ve ever had the privilege of tasting.

His humor and creativity were perfectly complimented by a healthy sprinkle of artistic temperament which could only mean that every meal was his palette of pride. And impress me he did! (And if you check out that link on him that I’ve provided, you’ll see his recipe for 5 Step Ribs – which I ate, then died, then died again before I could utter the words to describe their heaven. Seriously.) Currently he can be found conjuring culinary delights aboard the M/Y Rena. YOU. MUST. CHARTER.
