The only thing that Chef Bill Scatena loves as much as cooking for other people is igniting that passion in others. “To me cooking is all about sharing. I love sharing food that I’ve prepared, and sharing insight on how to prepare it,” he says. “I like taking the mystery out of it for people.”

Chef Scatena will inspire and delight you, and send you home with new recipes and skills.
