Sorry Folks for not having any updates here in a while. Been busy traveling this Christmas Season. One thing people now a days forget is that Christmas is the celebration of the Birth of Jesus Christ not just another holiday to spend lots of money.
Anyway...off my soap box and on to the journal update.
Been to the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park New York and to Washington DC cooking for dignitaries for their Christmas event celebrations. With all this going on the United States Air Force released the latest Air Force Torch Magazine just in time for the holidays with a three page culinary story of me.

3. Won 2nd Place in Culinary competition in Washington DC (White House Culinary Team won 1st and 4th place since they had two teams).

5. Uploaded lots of pictures on my Facebook site (http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000091575465).

Just completed an exhausting but rewarding week of photo shoots and interviews.
The Air Force Torch Magazine (http://www.torch.aetc.af.mil/) is doing a culinary feature story on me which will be published in the November/December Issue. I love a lot of the photos taken by the Torch Photojournalist Matt Hannen who took all the photos and did the interviews.
It was a lot of exhausting work but a lot of fun. I can't wait to see the finnished product. I have a copy of the over 400 picture proof but I can't display it publicly until the Torch Issue is published.
