What a great day for a trip to an oyster farm.  Take some time to look into you local farms and take a day trip.  Bet you’ll have a blast.  #localoysters #oysters #gastroart #cultivatewhatmatters #itswhatilove #cheflife

 It’s beginning to look a lot like Shoft Shell Crab season, everywhere you go... Maryland crab boils are the best. Feasting on some of the best the bay has to offer. #treatyoself #cheflife #crab

Happy Cinco de Mayo!  Here's a non Mexican dish because I just had to make a creamy cauliflower soup with an heirloom grape tomato salad on rainy Sunday.

There are so many feelings involved in eating.  Food is love. A great meal is only as good as the over all experience.  From the comfort of your favorite home cooked meal by your loved one, to a well executed dinner at a restaurant, those are the moments I love the most. #itswhatido #itswhatilove #cheflife #gastroart
