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 understand 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. After all I don’t have all day to spend in the kitchen why should I expect anyone else to.
The meals I help you create in your kitchen will bring smiles to your table and help you save money on dining out. And that’s a win-win in my book!
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 developed by me (unless otherwise noted) and have been created thanks to my years of experience as a professional chef. They are tested in my kitchen and 100% reliable.
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.
I now work from home and with my busy schedule, I don’t have time to spend hours in the kitchen and don’t expect you to spend all your time cooking either. You’ll find the majority of my dinner recipes take 30 minutes or less.
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.
