    Hello Everyone. My name is Keith. I am a culinary professional who studied in Vancouver, B.C. at Dubrulle Culinary Institute. I learned classic French techniques, but now I'm focusing on Italian by going to the new Slow Food school in Italy next year. Afterwards, I want to return to South Florida and work on private yachts while preparing to open my own authentic Italian osteria. Thats me.:bounce: :bounce:

    I'm not an Italian historian, but an osteria is from an ancient Roman word hosteria. It was a place to go that felt like home with warm surroundings and hearthy comforting food. Today, it is loosely used for any kind of casual restaurant--think Bistro. I hope that answered your question.
