I figured this is a good time to post some recent happenings going on with the Cowboy. So here goes!!!!!!!!!!!!
Living in a HOTEL
Currently settled in Baguio, Philippines. Due to some recent opportunities and money running very thin I figured I could chill for a while, this is my hub as I continue my Asia travels.
I MISS MY SLEEP NUMBER BED………….WHAT’S YOUR NUMBER? MINE IS 45!!!
I hope I get paid for that plug……..LOL!
My pillows are lumpy….BOO!!!!
A chef @ WORK
Consulting chef for Forest House Bistro, doing some menu revamp and creations. November, 2nd starting as Guest Chef Instructor @ the University of Baguio for the new semester. To include doing my hobby @ playing music as a DJ around town especially at a nightclub called HEX in the Nevada square. No longer taking the post as a chef of a new restaurant in Asia, the offer just didn’t fit me, though consulting for them in some recipe transcription. I have had a few offers here and there, also some other things in the wind, but nothing definite. To end it all trying hard to keep my website updated, I am a little behind……………………………whew!!!!!!!
In the MEDIA
Featured in a few newspaper articles with some more coming, so I am getting good press…fun, fun, fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THIS ARTICLE IS FROM THE MANILA BULLETIN:
As much as I love it here and to travel the world, am a little homesick of the USA. 6 months on the road, 2 USA, 4 ASIA! It’s just the little creature comforts that I have grown accustom to and the sheer appreciation I have for them. The short list: Missing my XBox (New Assassins Creed), movie theaters that have all you want butter and salt, TACO’S (I would kill for a decent taco), dance clubs where people actually dance…..ummmmm EL JIMADORE TEQUILA & other cool liquor brands, NON-MSG SNACK FOODS!!! Let’s face it, things are different: It’s like a retro rewind, about 20-30 years, especially in food. Lamb with mint jelly????? Still in a bit of culture shock coming from a culinary epicenter and seeing where everyone else is in the world, don’t expect to see any foams or Maltodextrin items around soon where I am at. That isn’t a bad thing though, the concept of open fresh market’s show that the USA is behind! I love going to the market and getting everything I need for the day and know it’s fresh non GMO product. The food tastes that much better! Coming up with Idea’s for new dishes, I play with everything; cooking straight simple, flavorful food, how it should be!
