Friends and brothers. Fork & Fire is brought to you by three mid-western boys drawn together by a passion to feed people and a flair for intense flavors. We had been cooking for each other and our families for years. Always fans of neighborhood cookouts that bring together friends and neighbors. Recently, jokes and dreams of one day taking to the streets and bringing our fare to a wider audience started to take shape. Focused around the deep flavors created when the heat hits meat, we are excited to bring Fork & Fire to your neighborhood. We hope you enjoy our food as much as we enjoy creating it.
I love people and I love watching their faces light up when they taste something amazing. To me, food is a way to connect with those around me. I have worked in the food industry right alongside my brother for as long as either of us can remember. From our dad's small diner when we were kids to multi-national concepts we have grown and developed our love of food, hospitality, and family, together. While working for the same companies for the last 2 decades we were still separated geographically. Now, with both of us in Tucson, AZ, it only seemed natural to embark on a food truck adventure as the next chapter in our story. We are uniquely positioned to bring something new to Arizona, so I am very excited to bring all our food and hospitality experiences together to bring to you, Fork & Fire.
Hailing from generations of restauranteurs, I have spent the last 25 years in the restaurant industry myself, learning things every single day. When at home, I have always cooked for family and friends. To me, cooking is recreation and relaxation combined with pride and anticipation. I am excited to bring my learned skills in the kitchen together with my passion for hospitality to share recipes that I have created as well as those handed down from family. My brother and my best friend joined forces with me to make this dream a reality, and my late father’s restaurant, The Ol’ Happy Belly, inspires me daily to bring people happiness through food. His legacy lives on in Fork & Fire.
It doesn’t feel like home if the smell of food isn’t coming from my kitchen. Together with friends, or alone, every week I try to bring new flavor and aroma to the neighborhood. Professionally I work in aerospace operations, I know how to get things done and I love working with people. This new venture allows me to pursue my passion for flavor and eating with the people that matter most to me. Good times and full stomachs, welcome to Fork & Fire
