About Stephan

I grew up in a restaurant family, and when I tell people how many places I’ve lived as a result, they first assume I grew up in a military family. My father being a chef, I used to determine the overall quality of a restaurant by its chocolate mousse. When I turned twelve I found out I had juvenile diabetes, and my frequent consumption of said mousses had to come to an end. However, by going to school at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, I soon learned that there was more to life than chocolate mousse. When I grow up, I want to start a blog about all of the exciting things I find in the world that don’t contain gelatin.
