Citrus Honey Chicken Thighs With Sweet Paprika,

Buttermilk Danish Dough,

In the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, I attended culinary school at L’ Academie de Cuisine in Bethesda. I was one of the many people in this world who decided to make a career change, so I left the medical field to go into the food industry. I can’t say it was always easy, but […]
