Chef Bill’s Bio
(How Chef Bill Developed A Passion for Cooking)
After graduating from culinary school, Chef Bill cooked at the original Ritz-Carlton/Boston, and later worked at Harbor Sweets, makers of handmade chocolates in Salem, MA. He started his personal chef business in September 2001. Since then, he’s provided cooking demonstrations and lessons for Whole Foods, Stonewall Kitchen, Reader to Reader, Monitor Group, and numerous businesses, schools and non-profit organizations. His audiences have ranged from just a handful of people to hundreds. In addition, he appeared weekly, for over five years, on Mass Appeal, a live daily lifestyle show on WWLP, the NBC affiliate in Springfield, MA.
Starting in 2014, Storey Publishing published four books by Chef Bill: Knife Skills, Making and Using Vinegar, How to Make Chocolate Candies, and Making and Using Caramel. He is currently working on a new book.
Chef Bill lives in Western Massachusetts with his wife Karen, and Clemmie, their retired racing greyhound. Bill can also be found on his bicycle, preparing for the 2023 Pan Mass Challenge. This will be his 25th PMC, which raises money for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
