Roger's interest in cooking began on the Chesapeake Bay in St. Michaels, Maryland
where he worked as an independent commercial waterman. After a few years he started a wholesale seafood business, and
was soon drawn to the activity of the commercial kitchens which he served. A "part time"
job at Schoenberger's Restaurant was the first step leading to a 40 year culinary career.
Roger enjoyed a 24 year career as the Corporate Chef at Johnnie's Restaurant Supply Co. in Chambersburg, Pa.
He did kitchen consulting and recipe and menu development for restaurants, institutions, camp facilities, and social and service
clubs in the tri-state area of Pennsylvania, Maryland, and West Virginia.
Roger is also a cookbook author, former newspaper cooking columnist (23 years), cooking instructor (24 years), advisor to
a secondary education culinary program, former advisor to Kraft Foods, and caterer of fine events. His annual efforts
for charity have assisted Women in Need, Wounded Warriors, The American Cancer Society, Association for Retarded Citizens,
the non-profit Cumberland Valley School of Music, and various service clubs and charitable organizations in the tri-state
He and his staff hope you will join them and experience some
informative and entertaining cooking classes, or exciting "Moving Feast" day trip bus excursions.
