About Patrick

Member since: Feb 20, 2008

I left home at the tender age of 18 and realized that if I was going to eat at the level I was accustomed to, I'd have to learn how to cook. Well, the learning has never stopped.
Wine has been a natural progression and it was visiting wineries that renewed my culinary passions. Now I collect and pair wine with most every evening meal. I’ve even done a few “tasting menus” for friends and fellow wine geeks. Every course paired to different wines.
I have everyone at Rouxbe to thank for making me a better cook!
