I am the Chef / Director of Dining Services at Mount Saint Joseph Academy in Flourtown, Pa. This will be my 7th year at the Mount where I feed 560 High School Girls. This is the only school I have ever worked at, my experience comes from Restaurant and Executive Dining. When I arrived at the Mount, I thought it would be easier to teach the girls how to eat rather than learn how to cook school foods. It seems I made the right choice.
I also run an after school culinary program that has 25 active participants. This blog covers our classes, foods we learn to prepare and foods we prepare and serve in school and all the foods I have learned to cook along my journey.
The Joy of cooking is alive and well at the Mount!!

My first inspiration was my Grandmother, she loved to cook and I certainly loved to eat, she taught me the joy of eating.....
Graham Kerr was my first chef inspriation. I would watch him cook for the audience and the reaction from them was incredible......I thought what a great way to make a living, making people happy with food.
Julia Child was to be everyones inspiration she was simply a joy to behold, and then there was Mama Jennette
