Gerry is the chef and photographer behind the culinary blog, Foodness Gracious, which he started when he became a stay-at-home dad to his two kids. While Gerry’s background mostly involves desserts and pastry, Gerry’s talent and passion for cooking spans a variety of cuisines. To Gerry, food shouldn’t be like rocket science – it should be simple, fresh and easy to prepare.
Gerry grew up in Scotland and has been living in Long Beach, California for 16 years. “I do still yearn for some foods from back home like haggis and great fish n' chips, but with so many different cultures and foods here in the Los Angeles area, I can't complain and feel spoiled for choice.”
His biggest piece of advice for cooking adventurists like himself? “Don’t sweat it in the kitchen, and I don’t mean the heat. I mean stay organized, grab a good recipe book and enjoy the smells and tastes of the food YOU are preparing. You’ll love the satisfaction of eating something that was made by your own hands.”
