I am a retired Chicago Cop, hence the name, The Cooking Cop. Cooking Cop sounded better than the Cooking Dude, Cooking Goof, Cooking Mook, or Cooking Mamaluke.
I cook. I eat. I drink. I write about it. I shoot pictures too. That is my game.
I started cooking at a very young age. I learned from my parents. My mother and father were both passionate about food, especially during holiday seasons and special occasions.
Over the years I took professional cooking classes to learn classic techniques and methods.
I want to share my passion for eating, drinking, and cooking with you.
I will share recipes, techniques and methods, handy kitchen tips and advice, and anything else that I learned.
I will share some of my favorite places to eat and other haunts in Chicago.
