IMPARA means “to learn” so the real question is,“Why learn?”  I am full of arguments in favor of learning and left searching for some reasonable opposition against it.  If I am learning, I am growing.  If I am learning, I am aware.  If I am learning, I am open.  I could go on and on.  By now its obvious, I love to learn!



Every door leads to a thousand other doors.  Like going on the internet only to get lost in a tangent of a tangent that has somehow lead you to why camels have two eye lids!?Huh?  You know what I mean 😉  This begs an even greater question, “How do I get the most out of what I’ve learned?”  Learning most certainly teaches you more about yourself, your environment, your own humanity, the purpose of life, on and on.  The bigger I become, meaning the greater viewpoint I take on, the more I can do- all possibilities.  Look at your own life.  Are you capable of more today than you were ten years ago?  Duh!? You’ve grown a lot in the last ten years!CIRCLE LOGO copy[2]




So, I say to you,


And become all that you can be!

Changing the world starts by changing our self.

In the next post, we’ll look at how learning creates more and more diversity leading to a greater appreciation of one’s own uniqueness.  There is only one of you in all the universe.  Embrace this reality.

In the beginning…

Welcome to my first website and blog.  I invite you to come along on this exciting journey of self discovery through the world of blogging, specifically about authentic regional Italian cuisine.  That’s where it all started for me  I had been to culinary school and was working in the United States of America for 3yrs prior to deciding to specialize in authentic regional Italian cuisine by living, studying, and working in Italy for one year.

I will continue to polish and fine tune this website.  Please bookmark it under real Italian cooking and check-in periodically for new additions and updates.  In the meantime, please explore the “About Us” page with its many profile links and then feel free to contact us for more information about how to hire Chef Keith to cater an unforgettable event for you, your workplace, your family,  your friends and/or…. all of the above!

No matter the event, you imagine it, and a rewarding unexpected experience will be delivered by Chef Keith that satisfies the soul in perpetuity.  My goal is to create loyal repeat customers eager to refer me to their friends, family, and co-workers.  Help me fulfill my goal by allowing me that first-time chance to make you a fan forever.
