Hi, I’m Chef Dennis and Welcome to my Culinary Journey! I am the writer, photographer, recipe developer and creator of Ask Chef Dennis and hope you’ll enjoy my easy and delicious restaurant-style recipes & travel adventures.
WHAT YOU WILL FIND ON ASKCHEFDENNIS.COM
My goal is to help you realize that cooking delicious restaurant-style meals in your own home is not as difficult as you think.
I’m here to help you create deliciousness in your kitchen without taking hours to do so, or using difficult to find ingredients.
The meals I help you create in your kitchen will bring smiles to your table and help you save money on dining out.
The biggest plus to cooking at home is controlling your ingredients. You never have to worry about what the restaurants, fast food and takeout places use in the food they serve you.
Travel is my latest passion and I’ve been fortunate enough to enjoy trips around the world and write about my adventures. I love to take you along on the trips sharing my own unique brand of Culinary Travel with you, inspiring you to get out and see the world.
PERSONALLY DEVELOPED RESTAURANT-STYLE RECIPES
All of the recipes on my blog are personally developed by me (unless otherwise noted) and tested for ease of making and great end results!
I now work at home and with my busy schedule, I don’t have time to spend hours in the kitchen and don’t expect you to have all day to cook either. You’ll find the majority of my dinner recipes take 30 minutes or less.
My recipes are authentic and ones I’ve used over my culinary career as a professional chef and when needed have been adapted to work in home kitchens. But honestly, it’s not rocket science and cooking creatively as chefs do is all about understanding simple techniques and using the right ingredients.
MORE ABOUT CHEF DENNIS
I am a classically trained chef and have worked in white table cloth restaurants, executive dining and finally at the end of my career at an all-girls Catholic high school where I took school food to an entirely new level. After 3 years at the school, I created a Culinary Program that brought acclaim to the school and was used as a model for other schools around the country.
I started cooking at a very early age and have always enjoyed making people happy with the food I cook. My early inspiration was Graham Kerr, the Galloping Gourmet.
