Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity. - Voltaire

The world is a great place—and there are many people who are working to make it even better. We can all do our part./lead]
My community has always been very important to me. It has supported me throughout my life and laid the foundation for who I am, both as an individual and as a chef. That is why I believe it is important to give back and contribute to the community whenever possible. We have all been blessed with different talents and skillsets, and if we can each find unique ways to contribute these talents to those around us, we can all work together to build a stronger community—not to mention a healthier country and world!
Because my work and passion revolve around food, I try to find creative ways to give back through my cooking. I find great satisfaction in contributing to the lunch program at the Linden Girls School, and also enjoy catering to various volunteer groups who are busy making our community a better place, such as Jamaica 50 and other church and non-profit groups. I love seeing others doing their part to make life better for their neighbors—both here and globally—and am glad that I can support these great people in their work by sharing my favorite dishes with them.
Although it is easy to become discouraged by all of the negativity we see on the news, the world is a great place—and there are many people who are working to make it even better. We can all do our part, so I hope to see you volunteering at a community event sometime soon—I promise the food will be great!more
