"Always searching for “The Next Great Bite”
Exploring the world of “Live Fire Cooking” and my love of seafood and traditional preparations that drives me. I find great satisfaction when people gather around any type of outdoor cooking. It is the whispers of smoke, the aromas of food, the melody of conversation, stories and laughter – this is my passion.
I started out on this path as a dishwasher, weekends, at my family’s cottage in Michigan. I wanted to water ski but had to pay for it. I got a job at the local restaurant. By the end of summer, I could read a ticket, fry a perfect “Sunnyside up” egg and make the best, crisp hash browns. I was hooked. I went back to school that Labor Day with a new interest. I moved to the lake the next summer and three Labor Days later I headed to Washburne Culinary Institute in Chicago to become a Chef.
I was 19 years old when I catered my very first BBQ; a half a Steer, I kid you not, cooked on a spit over charcoal. I also provided roasted corn, chili, baked potatoes, watermelon and strawberry short cake for 350 people, It is a day I will never forget. (My dad was dumb founded.)
Two years later I moved to Seattle. My wife Amy and I opened Café Pacific in 1989. We are celebrating 30 years of business this year, 2019.
We have been building our catering on my passions, Live Fire Cooking and Seafood. We feature Salmon Bakes, traditional BBQ (low and slow), Paella Parties, Crab Feeds and our latest party -- NW Oyster Roasts. We prepare succulent Puget Sound oysters and serve them on the half shell and/or roasted over a glowing bed of Alder coals. Locally harvested and crafted or sourced inspired by our Pan-Pacific pantry. As always, we are searching for “The Next Great Bite”.
