"Culinary Tips From Chef Raven"

Chef Raven's Culinary Tips , appear in SFPNN every Tuesday.


As the owner of a catering company, I often get asked for cooking or other culinary advice. I'm the first to admit that there is a lot that I don't know but luckily I'm married to a professionally trained Executive Chef. Between the two of us we should be able to answer any of your questions.


The reason I started doing my weekly tip was to give culinary information that I wish someone had told me. My information is aimed at the average-capability home cook but I am also available via email to answer any questions. No question is a stupid one if you don't know the answer. Ask away!
