    Professional Chef
    Hi,  My name is Arik Zamora Im a professional Executive Chef and live in a small town in New Mexico.  I have been in this bussiness for about 18 yrs. I started the odd job in high school as a busser and eventually made the transtion in to the kitchen in college.  Quit college to pursue my love of the food and never have looked back.  Worked under two James Beard winning Chefs.  Was Sous chef for what seemed like forever and just when i was about to quit this oportunity popped up and has been very successful and exciting.

    I what to be able to share any knowleged and or advice I can to any one that needs or asks.  Ihave no formal Culinary training.  worked in alot of resturants from Hawaii to New Mexico.  I have done my fair share of Stages. Thanks for having me.
