I cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food.

Old Country Catering is a Banquet Hall and a Catering service from Enfield CT. We own and operate the historic building of The Polish National Home of Enfield where we regularly cater to Weddings and all kinds of parties. We also operate the Smoke BBQ cafe in the same building (former Polish Deli) (smokebbqcafe.com) and Pierogi Queen Bakery (pierogiqueen.com). When I say we, I mean me.
I am a chef. Born and raised in Croatia (a small Mediterranean country between Italy and Austria). Married to a fantastic Polish girl, with two incredible daughters and a genius stepson. I have been cooking and eating (mostly eating and wine drinking) my way from Croatia, Italy, Poland, Spain and all Western Europe, finally landing in 2009 in New England. I have worked as a cook, salesperson, waiter, (a terrible) TV show host, marketing manager, hotel manager, CEO of a company and now a business owner and self-appointed chef. And also, all this time, a published SF writer and blogger. But most of all, I am a family man.
This is a blog about life in New England from a perspective of a newcomer, about my work in the kitchen, about the interesting people I meet, about my kids, my dog, cats, goats, chicken and fish.
Unlike this introduction, I only write humorous, funny blogs. I do believe there is no other way to look at the world. Life is too dramatic to take it seriously.
