My name is Mike. I am a practicing attorney from Massachusetts who enjoys cooking and entertaining. My favorite things to cook are italian cuisine (love northern italian especially), mexican, and all seafood. I live by the mantra "fat is flavor" and I have the lbs. to back it up! I spent most of my pre-professional career in restaurants, serving/waiting, tending bar, washing dishes, busing tables. Looking forward to learning new things on this site.
