Employer: Fruit Center Marketplace, Milton
Job: Recipe demonstrator
Who doesn’t love to sample a little morsel of food when they’re shopping at the market? I’m the lucky chef who gets to create and share these delicacies, whether it’s a kiwi apple jam with cheese or prosciutto mousse. I want customers to taste a bite and be inspired to use the recipe for a Saturday night dinner party or late afternoon snack.
Fun fact: I’m a total foodie and classically trained French chef — I have over 200 cookbooks in my house, overflowing from my kitchen and beyond. So when I retired from teaching at the Quincy Public Schools and wanted to launch a second career, I was so happy to use my culinary skills here. You just have to try one of my latest creations, avocado mac ’n’ cheese.
