I found these Chefs cooperative and willing to share their craft with a perfect stranger from Wichita. On one visit to a 5 star restaurant in Philadelphia the chef actually sent me his 7 page kitchen notes for a salad I enjoyed. That salad has been my signature dish for over 25 years. I was not just satisfied with creating good food, but proper wine selections as well. I learned this from Aunts Tini and Alice in Germany. For me cooking was a great way to end the day after stressful business decisions and a way to be creative. Great dishes, great wine.
About 20 years ago I agreed to collaborate with Susan Peters from KAKE and we became a team that was auctioned at the Catholic Charities Annual Cruise Night Event fundraiser, and it gave me a chance to showcase my skills to a new audience. I also then agreed to such benefits for Botanica, Exploration Place, and Newman University. During that time I took some classes at the Inn at Sedgwick from Lou Cox and the Napa Valley cookbook author, Hugh Carpenter.
Most recently I enjoyed giving Sunday morning cooking demonstrations at William Sonoma, Bradley Fair. I also had an opportunity to have cooking spots called “Cooking with Chef H “ on local television. That opportunity lasted 3 ½ years.
Thank you again for visiting my web site.
