I'm Joe (thegardenguru). I'm a former restaurant chef, a special events caterer and I teach cooking at various levels for the colleges and community programs in my area. My most popular class is entitled "The Epicurean Kitchen Garden", where I teach gardeners how to cook and cooks how to garden. I specialize in international cuisines and the fruits, nuts, berries, herbs and vegetables that we can grow in our area, whether in a garden or on a small farm. Would love to talk to any of you about authentic and traditional dishes.
