Hi folks! Due to the holiday I wanted to share with all of you my view on thanksgiving. Being a chef, I LOVE thanksgiving, turkey, pie, mashed potatoes. With so much happiness around it is easy to forget what the reason for the season really is, giving. Community service has always been so important to me and my family. I have dedicated many hours to bettering my local and global community, it is something I do not take lightly. Ever since I was little I have donated a good deal of time to my hometown, local food pantry. This year I challenge everyone to give back to someplace that has given to you. Whether it be a local church, food bank, soup kitchen, etc. please consider donating time or money to places who are many people’s safe haven. Any amount or time is greatly appreciated. Stay tuned for some great holiday recipes!
