He travels extensively, teaching cooking classes and promoting his easy, innovative American bistro cooking. He’s a regular weekly guest on the local NBC affiliate and has appeared on local and national radio and television programs, including Faith Middleton’s “Food Schmooze® on WNPR.”
Each attendee will receive a free copy of Courtney Febbroriello’s book, “Wife of the Chef: The True Story of a Restaurant and Romance” (retail value: $11.99).

A Bold New $45 Million Partnership Takes Aim at the Health Gap

A vigorous and unprecedented partnership between LISC and ProMedica, an Ohio-based integrated health system, is set to inject tens of millions of dollars to improve health outcomes and wellbeing in underinvested Toledo neighborhoods. The collaboration, which will serve as a national model, will fund opportunities for employment, income-building, education, community safety and affordable housing—all the social determinants that shape a person’s health. “When we connect [the] talent and resources [of the healthcare industry] to the expertise of community developers, we have an opportunity to drive changes that help people live better—literally adding years to their life,” said LISC CEO Maurice Jones. “That’s incredibly powerful.”
