|I spend winters in Texas or
traveling, and summers in New

lived and worked in various North
American States, Spain, Germany,
Italy, Mexico, Poland, France,
Holland, England, Belgium,
Luxembourg, Turkey, Austria, Switzerland,
Canada and Japan.
I’ve been cooking since I was a Boy
Scout and I first started collecting
recipes in Spain when I was 18
(close to 60 years ago). I have
gathered a great pile of them,
mostly from, "The Horses Mouth”:
Grandmothers, Texas Bar-B-Que
Smokers, lady’s Tamale,
Pierogi, and Ravioli parties, New
Mexico Chili and Pozole Cooks,
Street Vendors, Big shots, Little
Shots, Nobility, Spanish Gypsies,
Restaurant, Hotel, Pension, Bed
and Breakfast Cooks and Chefs
I have worked as a professional chef
and once owned a restaurant called
“Café Sevilla”. In the 70s I was a
chef at several other restaurants e.g.
I was once married to a beautiful
Italian girl, from the Dolomiti.
I have known many professional chefs and
discovered long ago that, while some are good
(many just pretentious), often Grandmothers
are just as good (sometimes better) but don’t
wear the silly, white monkey suits, and so,
don’t get as much credit.
I have lived with a beautiful
girl from Tokyo for the last 30+
years. She does most of the Asian
food in our house and I will
eventually get around to including a
lot of it on this site.
I speak fluent Spanish and Italian,
“get by” Portuguese, fair German,
half assed Japanese and French I’m
beginning to do pretty well with
I have 50 years of food monkey
business in my brain. It has piled
up until it’s just trying to spill out
all over this website and if you want
a bit of it, just download it from the
Whopty Whomp and I hope its fun.
