Chef Heath Schecter told his wife, in 2001, that he wanted to write a cookbook...16 years later he did. As a chef, he creates a lot of cool dishes...yet, his kids won't eat most of them...and they are missing out. This cookbook is a collection of his recipes created over the years, from starters, soups & salads, main courses, sous vide cooking, desserts, sides, sauces, seasonings and more. The recipes are very approachable and the steps are laid out to recreate them. He is very proud of this book; however, what he is most proud of, is that 25% of the proceeds will be donated to the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation (which raises money for child cancer research) in memory of his friend's daughter, the little warrior, Mia B Gurevitz.
Chef Heath Schecter has worked in restaurants for over 25 years, covering every position from the bottom up. He has a bachelor's degree in Architecture from the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee, and attended culinary school at the Arizona Culinary Institute in Scottsdale, AZ. He was contracted to write (published) recipes for a sous vide company, and has worked with celebrity chef Beau Macmillan at the Sanctuary Resort in Paradise Valley, AZ. Heath currently works as a corporate executive chef within the food manufacturing business, where he has created sauces, spice blends, and ready-to-eat deli salad. Heath also spends time in Lake Forest, IL with his friend, a James Beard house nominee, Chef Dominic Zumpano of The Gallery restaurant. Heath is currently a co-chef at The Gallery.
