Hey there! I’m Geoff

Greetings from the Garden State! I am a career classically -trained chef turned blogger and now a full-time stay-at-home -dad of two tweens and an eight-year-old. What you’ll find at Intuitive Gourmet are bright ideas to please your palate, help you become a better cook, and simplify your life. Enjoy!

Great ideas to improve your kitchen intuition

I am so excited about this part of the site! Being a chef is a lot of trial and error. Problem-solving was one of the most significant parts of my job. My mentality was, “there is always a better way to do anything”. On this page, you will find tips and tricks for all areas of cooking and better ways to work in your kitchen, so you don’t have to make the same mistakes I did!

Why I won’t promote diet for weight loss

If you heard about a “healthy lifestyle” diet being touted as the latest and greatest between 2000 and 2015, I have probably tried it. You name it, I’ve done it: Keto, Atkins, low-sugar, low-carb, and Paleo plus all the big-name calorie-counting apps. They all worked for the short-term, but ultimately, my weight always rebounded and I ended up heavier than I started and even more discouraged.
