Welcome to the new Secret Recipe Blog! Every week you can expect new and exciting Secret Recipes along with interesting cooking related articles and tips. One of the great benefits of cooking blogs is that it allows you to become part of a global community of people who share this same passion. I am very passionate about food and cooking and I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you all.
Allow me to introduce myself. I am Chef Tom of New York City. As far back as I can remember I have always enjoyed cooking. As a child, my grandmother would teach me how to recreate many of our families famous recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. It was not until my high school years that I realized cooking could be my future. I got a summer job as a dishwasher at a popular restaurant in St. Augustine, Florida. My intense work ethic allowed me to be promoted quickly. Within months I was able to work in all parts of the kitchen. I enjoyed the hard work and the gratification I received from all the happy customers.
Two years later I moved to NY and was hired to be head chef at a local Italian restaurant. At the same time, I was preparing for college and was putting much thought into my future. I decided to study cooking and restaurant management and I received my degree in restaurant management. To this day, it doesn’t matter if I’m cooking for a packed restaurant or my family and friends at home, I’m always happy when I’m in the kitchen!
