The Tao of Ciao
In my kitchen you will not find a microwave, as I prefer and honor the cooking techniques of my grandmothers. Here we do all of our preparation by hand, and cook in a similar manner the ancients used to bring food to the table. I am fascinated with the process of cooking with wood and fire, and am passionate about this rustic form of cuisine. I prefer to cook and eat the food of people who live close to the land. I am inspired by and drawn to the food of the farmer, the peasant, and those without the means to host lavish feasts. I believe that the quality of food should be measured by the time it takes to get from the field to the plate. I believe that cooking simplicity leads to cooking perfection.
