Summary of where the Chef’s cuisine is inspired from and how he/she goes about expressing it

My style varies from a great home cooked meal that brings back memories of my childhood to an elegant plate with pan seared Lamb chops with a parsley crust and Mashed Potatoes. I love to cook Mexican dishes that bring me back to my roots as well as Great Matzah ball soup to fresh made sushi and sashimi. I create meals based on my client's ideas and dietary needs. From regular to gluten free and vegan desserts.
