Hello, I am glad you found me… I am David Earl from Florida. I am a Chef, Writer, Recipe Developer, Consultant, Strategic Thinker and a Food Ministry Leader who believes in giving back.
In 2000, after a lifetime in food services, I didn’t want to continue cooking at all. I felt that wasn’t me. So I sold the last restaurant I owned and I took a job where I could stay close to being a leader in the restaurant world, but wouldn’t have to cook. I thought.
Sometime in 2009 I quit my job and was called to cook in a church that could seat four to six hundred people. I have been there ever since.
2016 has been a challenging year for me to say at least.
So, with this new redesign of my website, building a new house which will be ready in November 2016, turning 60, 45 years of dedicated work in food service, and a whole lot of other things, it has inspired me to think about what I want to do the rest of my life. Retiring is not one of them.
This website features recipes I have developed and tested along with tempting photographs. Recipes are for use in a home or a restaurant. With this new recipe development method I have created, (called “Prep, Cook, Serve”), even the beginner cook can get through it.
Things That I Believe In
I believe “Cooking is a Choice,” “Choosing Your Lifestyle” is a choice, and “Off The Grid 138” will give you another choice. More on each one as they develop.
Happy Cooking, Happy Lifestyle, Happy Dining
