After leaving NYC in the fall of ’96, I wanted to bring my passion for food to and help create a culinary awareness in the Black Hills of South Dakota.  I wanted to channel my energy in a new direction where the canvas was blank.   Over the last years of running the restaurant, I felt that I had come full circle with The Corn Exchange Restaurant and had accomplished all that I could do with it.  This was one of the reasons I decided to close The Corn in April of 2013 after 15 years.  I look forward to this new exciting chapter of food in my  life and am excited to help you with your food passions and projects, whatever they may be.
