Animals raised without antibiotics or hormones. Great for charcuterie boards and wine pairings.
My passion for working with meat, and especially charcuterie, was born while working at Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee. Tutelage there with Michael SULLIVAN taught me how to transform and sublimate pork products. This sparked a desire to produce artisanal charcuterie that has never left me.
I continued my training in haut cuisine kitchens with Daniel BOULUD in New York before crossing the Atlantic to join the crew of chef Alain DUCASSE in his most famous restaurant, Louis XV in Monaco. While holding on to my goal of creating my own charcuterie, I trained myself in all culinary positions in order to gain a fundamental understanding of the basics of cookery. My time there allowed to me to work with high quality seasonal ingredients to create refined Mediterranean cuisine for our clients.
It was with Gilles VEROT, in Paris, that I was finally able to master the subtleties of the production of charcuterie. As sous chef, I acquired the techniques to master this fine art of meat processing. My quest to learn more brought me to work in a high end butcher shop, Dierendonk in Belgium. While there I worked with his team to familiarize myself with the cutting of whole pigs, beef and lamb.
