About Chef Brandon

After a youth of minor (and sometimes not-so-minor) delinquency growing up in the Southeastern United States, I managed to graduate from Radford University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Foods and Nutrition. However, instead of taking off on the traditional route of going straight into grad school and pursuing a career in clinical dietetics, for some dysfunctional reason I yearned to pay my dues in the world of professional cooking. Knowing next to nothing about even simple food preparation, I took my first, second, and third kitchen jobs while still in college. That eventually led me to enroll at Johnson and Wales University in Charlotte, where I earned an Associate of Applied Science degree in Culinary Arts.

My goal was never really to be a “chef” per say. I simply just wanted to learn about food, while mastering the skill of cooking. The hope was to accomplish this and then take my culinary skills back to the world of dietetics, while simultaneously doing the opposite, using my nutrition background in my cooking.

    Thank you for your blog. Its hard to find someone like you who not only posts healthy recipes but knows how to cook and knows about the food. Too many hacks out there, you are the real deal. Hope to come across your preparations someday.

    Hello old friend. I began following you several years ago but got caught up and lost focus and never reached out. I can’t tell you how happy I am with your career direction. I recently lost 65 lbs purely based on diet and utilized a few of your recipes along the way. Diet is a big part of my life now and even though you didn’t know you were a big part in assisting with that.

    • Hey buddy! It is so great to hear from you, and even better to hear that the recipes have helped with your new approach to eating. I hope all is well. It’s been WAY too long since we have caught up. Please give me a shout sometime either by phone or email. It would be awesome to reconnect with you!
