My Culinary Adventures started by accident many years ago. I stumbled into the Culinary world via a Colorado Ski Bum experience in which I had planned on using my newly acquired Ski Instructors Certificate. Being a Ski Instructor (especially as the newbie) is more about Bunny Slopes than Steep & Deep as I had hoped when I landed in Denver and headed for Summit County and Vail. A cooking shift from 3pm to 11pm offered more money and more time to enjoy the real skiing of Colorado. And that is where my Adventure began.
