Hello all, and welcome to Carne Diem! My name is Chris and I am a full-time physician, travel junkie, and foodie. During my travels I love nothing more than exploring new foods and dishes from around the world, then trying to recreate them at home.
“If I’m an advocate for anything, it’s to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. The extent to which you can walk in someone else’s shoes or at least eat their food, it’s a plus for everybody.
Open your mind, get up off the couch, move.”
― Anthony Bourdain
As a competition pitmaster with the KCBS, I hope to share some of my experience cooking up some of the best meat dishes from around the world.
I look forward to sharing the joy of cooking and some of my favorite recipes, and hope I am able to teach some useful methods and techniques that have helped me become an award winning pitmaster and cook.
