I am Jozef Zebediah – Joe for short! – a graduate of Columbia University and a Licensed Psychotherapist, Ordained Interfaith Minister, Relationship and Creativity Coach, author, performance artist and Chef-Baker. I pursued my culinary studies at The International Culinary Center as well as the Institute for Culinary Education and the Natural Gourmet Institute, all in New York City. I simply love what I get to do.
My Grandmother and Grandfather, Martha and Alberto, taught me enduring lessons about life, love, work and adventure, not just what they were but, more importantly, how to breathe life into them. They, each and every day, showed me by example how to become who I was truly created to be. And now, I am thrilled to share with you the delectable fare and nuggets of wisdom I found at my grandmother’s table, all infused with love, gratitude and joy.
Nick Easton, a former teacher with undergraduate and graduate degrees in education, left the classroom to create and operate two business ventures: Antiques Markets, Inc., a traveling show of artifacts and heirlooms, and the Cavern Club, one of Michigan’s largest entertainment complexes, both located in Ann Arbor. Antiques Markets, Inc. produced shows within the state and across the Midwest. The Cavern Club, with four venues in one building, was featured on HGTV. Nick presented a number of bands, comedians and performers all the while hosting parties, ceremonies and festivities for Hollywood moviemakers, entertainers, politicians, university students and just about anyone who had cause for celebration!
