Food is Social: Your G+ Go-To Chef

I joined Google Plus back in July, with no expectations of well...anything. I had just started a blog, and thought this along with twitter would be a good way to market it. 
I got so much more than that. 
I found opportunity, knowledge, growth, and community. I found people that loved food as much as (maybe more than) I do. I've been learning about social media, started writing for a new media blog, Media Tapper, and got to hangout with some cool people. 
So in this awesome experience so far, I know there is more to come, and more to see. And I can't wait. 
I am an Online Culinary Instructor for Chefhangout.com, a professional chef of 15 years, a cookbook author, and I have a catering business. 
I hope you enjoy my posts, they are mostly about food, but in addition I like the following:

And that's about it. Pleas

About 12 weeks ago Peanut Crusted Curry Roasted Cauliflower w/ Scallion Puree

My theme lately has been all about colors, and this is no exception. The peanuts give an awesome crunch and plenty of flavor to an already flavorful dish. Recipe coming soon...

And also pretty sure this is the theme to my new cookbook: Color. Still don't have a title, but rest assured, it will be bright!

About 1 week ago About 1.5 lbs of spring/mesculin mix. Already harvested one crop last week. 1 packet of seed has already paid for itself 4 times over. If you wanna save cash on food, this is the way to do it.

Going to keep a log of how much I harvest from the garden and how much the same would cost me buying from the store. Interested to see the results!
