 We sat down with Hugh recently and asked him some questions.  Click here for more information on the Empire Italy event at Blackberry Farm!


What ingredient can you not live without?

Great vinegar. It gives food good bounce. I love acid on the palate. It makes food sing.
If you could only cook with one pan/dish what would it be?
A 10 inch cast iron skillet. Well worn, but they are better that way.
What is your favorite thing to do when not in the kitchen?
Read about food! It's my endless topic that I have chosen in life.
Favorite memory in the kitchen?
Getting our first real review at Five & Ten. It was a great review and it made us work even harder.

What would you be if you were not a Chef? 

Architect. I love planning stuff out. I would have to get educated in the craft though, unless they change the building code laws and allow me to submit blueprints on beverage napkins.
