What's one of your favorite things to cook?
What I really enjoy making is soup. I love making homemade soup.
Any particular soup?
No, to be honest, it goes like 'okay, what should we make today? Cream? Or a base broth?'"
What ingredients could you not live without?
Onions and garlic.
What's one food that you won't eat?
I'm not a dessert fan. I don't have a sweet tooth.
Where do you go out to eat on a day or night off?
I'm pretty homebound. I have two sons and my wife works. But when I get a chance, Lattanzi's.
What's one of your favorite things about the Island?
The community, and the beach.
Your favorite beach?
South Beach, left fork, we drive right on. The kids love it.
