I am a retired Judge/Attorney and I divide my time between the Portland,Oregon area and a second home on the Oregon coast.
My father was professionally trained as a cook/chef, before going on to another career, and taught me to cook at age 6. Cooking is one of my main interests in retirement and I recently recieved some training as a Sous Chef at a cooking school.
Once a month I help cook/prepare an oyster and fish dinner, for a public service club on the Oregon coast, serving between 200 and 300 diners.
I enjoy preparing small dinner parties and food for informal gatherings. I try to utilize fresh foods from the pacific northwest (seafood, fruits and vegetables etc.) in regional recipes.
Incorporating cocktails and wines together with complementary food items is a usual offering in my meals for guests.
Among my favorite restaurants are The Ship Inn on the Oregon coast and Mario's and John Henry's in the Palm Springs, California area.
