Hi, I'm Tony...
I'm an ex hacker on a quest for a second career in the food service industry. I currently live in Vermont, but I've been up and down the east coast over the decades with a brief stint in Des Moines, IA and I originally hail from just outside Vienna (Wien) Austria. I got started on my second career a bit over a year ago, by attending a local culinary training course and have so far had less than a handful of jobs in a kitchen, and although it's far from easy work, especially since I'm no longer a spring chicken, I hope to still have many years of making faces light up with a plate of food ahead of me.
I found my way here because I got tired of having to use dull, abused "community" knives in the kitchens that I've worked in so far, and have been trying to educate myself on kitchen knives for a couple of weeks now in preparation of buying something a little nicer. I'm looking forward to learning from/with y'all!
