Tastes & Tunes

I recently went to Nashville to hock my wares (AKA….sell food) at the National Association of College & University Food Service (NACUFS). What an amazing town! I can’t say enough about the atmosphere and the food. I’ll admit that I stayed pretty “touristy”, which is an oddity for me when I travel, but this is the town to do that in. There is something magical about walking down the street and each place you pass has live music blaring out the door. I know it’s the country music capitol, but the talent level of the musicians in every honky tonk exceeded even my expectation.

Chef Paul, a Certified Research Chef, is a 2002 graduate of Yorktowne Business Institute School of Culinary Arts in York, Pennsylvania. There he was class valedictorian and received the Chef Michael Hostetter Memorial Award for Culinary Excellence. He is a member of the Research Chefs Association and the Refrigerated Foods Association and has over 15 years of experience.

Working in restaurants since the age of 16, Paul has spent most of his life working with food; a love he developed in family style restaurants, honed in school, and practiced in fine dining establishments. Never one to be defining himself with a particular cuisine, Paul explores the world's palate with excitement. "The world is full of people who have made incredible foods with what is in their backyard and we now have access to all those wonderful flavors and combinations," he says. That love and excitement for flavor he now brings to Furmano Foods.
