Welcome everyone to my new site!
My name is Damien Adley and I’m a chef in Omaha, Nebraska. We may not be the food capital of the world but there is certainly a lot to be said for living in the heartland!
StarveFood is going to be the heartbeat of my passion for food. I’ll be writing a ton of great information on the blog and updating it constantly. Some of the types of content I’ll be writing about include product reviews, gear guides, great recipes, vegan and vegetarian food production, how to guides and more. I might even write a little bit about how I recently made soap!
Cooking and baking have long been my passion and my choice of study as well. As a professional chef I hope to spread my knowledge of food and culinary techniques to anyone who wishes to read.
The clanking of silverware, the folks that are peeling potatoes or stirring simmering sauces, and the end of the day’s mulling over what to order next are all vital elements of running a commercial kitchen, and they are no small feat.
Becoming engrossed head-first with all of the fine ways that food can make you feel, I wanted to share doses of my personal experience, and pass on knowledge that many need when first starting out. Been cooking for decades? Excellent! Stick around and check out how we expand on age-old ideas that collide perfectly with new ones.
I’m looking forward to hearing comments from readers, answering any questions about being a chef, cooking or food and spending time with anyone who is interested in the culinary artform!
Join me as I blog my way through the world of cooking, kitchen products and amazing food!
