My name is Bob Medvedenko and I am a foodie, photographer and gardener. I am interested in all things food. I started cooking when I was in the in the forth or fifth grade….omelets and salads were big as I recall. I discovered Julia Child and Graham Kerr (The Galloping Gourmet) http://www.grahamkerr.com/ who made food and cooking seem fun and interesting. I am a professional photographer specializing in products and advertising. I am married with three children living in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area. I was born in Philadelphia and went to High School and College in North Carolina where I learned to love country ham biscuits and NC style chopped barbecue.
