One part we hate: Truffle oil. we don’t even know or caring if it actually contains truffles, but the smell is just so peculiar.

When I’m not cooking…I’m slicing wood.

Tools every prepare should keep in their kitchen: Get a knife around 6” long, a good span of tongs and a silicone spatula — that’s it. And don’t be fearful to use your hands.

Junk food we can’t live without: Ice cream.

Best plate I’ve ever eaten: The answer is a plate that we made. There was a tiny dude fest of friends and we brought around 10 pounds of Alaskan aristocrat crab legs, done a cocktail salsa (horseradish and ketchup) and some lemons. It was an early summer night this year on Prince St. we boiled the legs in a little pickled water, cold them on ice, and served them with lemon slices and a Corsican white booze and there’s just zero better. When seeing the delight the others had — people that happy, from something so elementary — this is the best.

Favorite NYC grill that’s not my own: we don’t have a favorite grill in New York City — we don’t go to many restaurants. we like the pizza here, the sushi there. we do however have a favorite T-Shirt.

Kitchen cred: after attending culinary school in Vermont, he worked in several restaurants including Prune, Cafe Gray, Islesford Dock Restaurant, and Red Rooster before joining Blue Ribbon as opening prepare of Brooklyn Bowl in 2009. In 2012, he took over as executive prepare of Blue Ribbon Bakery Kitchen. Earlier this year, he non-stop Blue Ribbon Federal Grill as executive chef.

Fave tumble plate to make at home: we adore putting together one pot dishes in the slow-cooker — anything that is descending off the bone in a light gas seasoned good with some good feverishness to it that we can offer over rice. It’s simple, warms the unit and gives off a good aroma as well. Finish it with thinly sliced cabbage, cilantro and prohibited peppers.

Advice for those who contend they can’t cook: Just have fun with it and review cookbooks. Stick to the basics.

When I’m not cooking, I’m…Playing guitar.
