My recipes are all simple and I hope to be able to inspire everyone with my cooking. I am privileged enough to be able to use the meat from my family’s farm and a premier ranch out in Montana named La Cense named which I have been working with to help promote grass-fed ranching! Even though grass-fed meats are used in all my cooking I am sensitive to the fact that they are cost prohibitive for some. I am not a radical, but I think that grass-fed farming can help farmers compete in our commodity-driven agricultural system; it is also better for the animals and our bodies. I also favor using non-prime cuts because this is where grass-fed meats are at their best: they are inexpensive, healthy and wonderfully tasty!
The focus of my cooking is creating exciting food with simple farm-fresh ingredients. New York City is filled with glorious ethnic food and I am constantly introduced to and inspired by all the cultures and food New York has to offer. I realize that a lot of Asian food can be intimidating, but all my recipes strive for simplicity and readily available ingredients.
