The Way to a Man's Heart

Pete (the drummer) says: 

So they say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach...

Other than the drive to constantly better myself as a musician and performer, a passion for food and the culinary arts is a close second. Studying cultures for their music, always...studying them for their food is just as amazing. Just as music is more than entertainment to many cultures around the world, food is more than just a meal. It brings families together, celebrates holidays, has spiritual and religious meaning, and so much more. Like music it also allows for creative freedom. Of course there are the traditional dishes that do not need changing: Take the time open a cook book and do it. You could surprise yourself and others with an extraordinary dish.

Cooking has been a long time passion for me and always will be. For at least twenty plus years I’ve done most of it in my home and some professionally. The idea of people enjoying my cooking, the looks on their faces and my favorite sound, mmm, brings a smile to my face and puts joy in my heart. It’s the same feeling I get when I see people enjoy our music. So if the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, does that mean I’m a man after my own heart? No it just means nobody else in this house can cook!

P.S. A quick and simple dish: Shrimp Scampi

As long as the pasta took to cook is as long as the dish took to make.
