I fell in love with the beautiful country and people of Morocco and decided to use my skills to launch an initiative to highlight the Very Best of Morocco – Gregory
My goal is to provide tourists with opportunities to experience the Very Best of Morocco as well as meet, interact with and provide income for the talented, hard working and kind local community.
“Cooking, eating and drinking wine brings me great joy and is a creative outlet that also combines delicious cultural flavors, and conversations into an always memorable experience.”
My well traveled gourmet cooking mom taught my sister and I how to cook. She also impressed upon us too enjoy and appreciate the preparation of fresh food and drinking wine in a casual environment with family, friends and guests.
I have been most inspired by chefs Fredy Giradet and Charlie Trotter as well as numerous others.
I am an American living who loves to cook and entertain people in my home. My family has lived in the USA for over 360 years and my ancestry consists of the fusion of African, Irish, Mexican, Itakapa & Blackfoot Native American and French.
