This is normally just a BBQ blog, but I'm going to give a plug to my friend and former boss, Chef Terry Noyes, owner of Bocca in East Haven, CT.
We worked together in the mid 1990's at Terry's restaurant at the time, Armory Square Cafe in Milford CT, when we were both a lot younger and skinnier. I waited tables, and eventually was a manager at Armory Square. I credit Terry a lot for my interest in learning to cook. He used to blow me away with his cooking style, and I remember the two plus years I worked in his restaurant with him as some of the best times of my life. It was certainly the most fun I have ever had at work.
Terry appeared on Channel 8 in Connecticut for an entertaining cooking segment over this past weekend. Click HERE to watch the video.
Also, be sure to visit his restaurant in East Haven for some great food. It's a short drive off I-95 for you readers who may be passing through the area at some point. Here's the web site:
Hopefully we will be able to lure Terry to a BBQ competition this year!
