All chefs & cooks should check out the @trannonculinary line of chef packs. I’ve been using their bags for years now and can’t go to work without them.  You’ll wonder what you ever did without one.  They’re good people too; you won’t be disappointed. www.trannonculinary.com.

This is the kind of street meat I can get into. Cooking over a wood fire is always a good idea. #astoria #streetfair #streetfare #meat
