About Your Host

I started my career when I was 15 and found I was very good in this industry. I was encouraged me to apply at to the new cooking school, National Cooking Institute, my first Chef's position was at the Ramada Inn, Casper, WY I was the Pastry Chef their early in my career. This is where I honed my skills in the bakery. Our sourdough starter was 45 years old! We made our own ice cream, breads, donuts, pastries, wedding cakes, and Ice Carvings. I worked on my Grilling skills @ El Rancho (under the original owners, remember the Prime Rib and Fresh Boneless Rainbow Trout), Old Heildberg Inn (used charcoal), Buckhorn Exchange ( I cooked meats from 4 different continents). I have worked as a personal Chef for "Special" people in Denver as well as people with special dietary needs, Gluten Free, Diabetic, No Yeast/Fungus. I have won awards for my Pastries (3rd place Colorado Restaurant Association), my restaurants, Matisse Café, Best of Denver, 5280 Magazine Dec2003-Jan2004, 1st Annual Denver County Fair, 2nd place Gluten Free Baked Goods, My Gluten Free Brownie would have won 1st place in that category, but we were disqualified because we were Gluten Free and the rest were general baked goods. I have cooked for many famous people in all parts of the public eye. Former President Jimmy Carter and Wife, Joan Biez, Smothers Brothers, Stacy Keach, numerous Broncos players, Governor Hickenlooper, Senator Bennett, Senator Gardner, and many of the who's who in Denver. We will have a great time cooking together, learning and story telling!

What we'll do

Prepare for the Father's day cookout with me, Chef Jim, and learn how to masterfully grill various types of Kebabs and leave with enough BBQ Kebabs for the whole family. I will display how to properly assemble and grill three different types of skewers: (NY Striploin, Shrimp and Scallops, and Chicken). If that is not enough meat for you, bacon will also be available to be added. Each skewer will also include different types of vegetables that will complement all that delicious meat. We will grill samples of each of the Kebabs, so you know what to expect and be able to taste the quality. I will also instruct on how selecting the proper meats and vegetable to fit every appetite and preference. As well as how to best use marinades and sauces to bring out the true flavor of the meat. In the end, we will prepare a side of Fingerling Potatoes that will also be cooked on the grill and discuss several dessert recipes that will not keep you in the kitchen all day. BONUS TREAT: you will be bringing home enough raw food to cook on Father's Day for 3-6 people; you'll also be getting 1 NY Skewer, 1 seafood skewer, and 1 chicken skewer to take home with you. Be sure to wear comfortable clothing and bring a big appetite.
