As a child, Chef Steve discovered his love of cooking while assisting his Grandmother to prepare family meals. This experience shaped his life and laid the foundation for his passion for cooking. Steve believes that the joy of cooking is a learned experience that is shared with family and friends and he takes every opportunity to share his passion for the culinary arts with his community and customers.

Like Chef Steve, Chef Cole discovered his passion for the culinary arts as a young child when he took a kids cooking class at a local market at the age of 7. Before long, he was dreaming up meals in his parents' kitchen, watching every cooking show he could and reading every cookbook and culinary guide he could find. Now, at the ripe old age of 12 (almost 13), Cole studies menus and creates and cooks tasting menus for his parents and their friends. Cole finds great satisfaction in sharing his passion for cooking.
