My vision is not just to inspire those who love cooking to become great cooks, but also to inspire those who dislike cooking to discover a new sense of enjoyment. I’m specifically referring to those of you who think cooking is impossible and you just weren’t genetically born to cook. Does that sound like you?
"You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”
I am here to change all that – to inspire you to understand that most people struggle with cooking not because they can’t cook, but because they don’t like to and don’t want to. We can become better cooks and develop a stronger passion for cooking simply by becoming better with that skill.
I believe people who have negative energy produce negative results. When you say you are a bad cook or when you tell others you are a bad cook, you are only creating more of a bad cook in you. We will change all that.
Energy Flows Where Attention Goes

He is also a graduated with honors at Fox Valley Tech where he majored in Culinary Arts (Accelerated) and achieved his Associate’s degree.
Chef C. comments; “I feel we should have the same respect for food like we do for life when preparing it. After all real food was once alive therefore should be treated like a delicacy when preparing it as well as eating it. I use live food in my shows which means almost everything I use in one way or another was once alive. Therefore you not only benefit from the party this food will have with your taste buds, but also all the nutritional values that come with live foods.
Chef C. adds “I’m holding nothing back. I will be sharing all of my secrets & recipes I have learned over the years from restaurants I worked at, home cooks I’ve cooked with, and techniques that are only taught in Culinary Arts School. You, the students will not only be better cooks and more educated but also be a better person.” Chef C. cooks with a strong passion and makes it his priority to educate himself so in return he can educate others that struggle with cooking. His style of cooking is very unique because he infuses cultures and ingredients to create flavor that could only be created by the hands of a champion.
Chef C. believes in the Law of Attraction & the Power of Positive Thinking. Chef C. dedicates his work and mind to this theory and hope others will follow. He believes that if you think you can be a great chef/cook than you will, but if you think you won’t be a great chef/cook than you probably won’t. Chef C. believes that if everybody before entering the kitchen focuses on what they want out of this recipe instead of what they don’t want like burning it, the outcome will be great almost every time. That’s why Chef C. created 8 steps to a perfect meal that will help viewers be more positive in the kitchen therefore making them more productive & creative. Chef C. finishes by saying “I now understand my purpose in life and that is to teach the world everything I can about food for the mind, body, and soul. Good food, Good time, Good health, the three goods good food brings.”
