Keith has worked in the restaurant industry for most of his life. From his humble beginnings as a short order cook at a local family restaurant, to his position of executive chef at the Park Hotel, Keith has always had an insatiable curiosity for the culinary arts. He has spent countless hours with chefs and restaurant entrepreneurs alike, and he loves to explore different methods of food preparation and presentation. He spent many years managing restaurants, developing menus, and overseeing kitchens.
More recently, Keith has focused on the sales side of the business, working for a major food distributor. He still enjoys collaborating with chefs and managers to create efficient and successful restaurant kitchens. Though his recent cooking is limited to his kitchen at home, and his "clientele" consists of family and friends (particularly under the age of sixteen), Keith still thoroughly enjoys experimenting in the kitchen. He believes cilantro is quite possibly the perfect herb, and that a good cut of meat (well prepared) could solve most world problems. A true mid-westerner, Keith feels that no meal is complete without potatoes.
