Bruce has had a varied and interesting life and career– from his early days in an Austin music scene that somehow had room for both Willie Nelson and The Butthole Surfers to travels and a career of cooking for celebrities and heads of state, to recent days where his interest and activism in the world of local foods has lead him to be a part of helping to change the very way we have access to local, healthy and sustainable food… At the end it is difficult to sum him up beyond saying that he has lived…

and has stories to tell…
