Tom Setzer, Founder,

  • I’m a software engineer by training, but perform duties of executive chef in my house at night (and top dish washer).  I live in Tampa, Florida with a wonderful wife and two boys.  I’ve traveled throughout the world, experiencing the wonderful variety of culture and food.  From Chicago hot dogs under the ‘L’ to North Carolina pulled pork to fresh crêpes on the streets of Paris, I have tasted all that came across my plate.  I love to travel and usually like to pick destinations where food is a focus of the trip (loved Italy). I’ve taken numerous cooking courses and classes, and have found my love in outdoor cooking where I can relax over a hot grill and a cold beer with friends and family.
