The Menu

My friend Johnny Graham is an incredible chef. Johnny cooked my friends and I an unforgettable dinner that I wanted to share with all of you. Johnny started honing his kitchen skills under Chef Geoff Felsenthal at Bella Vista and Charlie Trotter's in Chicago. I love Johnny like a brother and I especially love working with him in the kitchen. I continually pick up lots of tips and and tricks from him. Stay tuned for Johnny tips and tricks.... coming soon. Check out the recipes from Johnny's dinner under my recipes tab.
