I’m Duke DesRochers and I’m your handyman chef and Renaissance Man.

I just recently submitted my audition tape to the Food Network in their search for The Next Food Network Star.

Here’s the YouTube version of the audition video.

You can also find the video on The Food Network audition site at any of these links to leave a comment and vote for me to be the next Food Network star:

Sorry about that. The Food Network adjusts the links to the videos by their popularity, so pass the word around and keep it on page one and everyone can find it.

If you still want to vote for me and can’t find The Food Network video page, email them and cast your vote.

Love Cooking With Tools

I’ve always loved working with my hands, whether is it on my artwork, in the kitchen, or doing handyman work around the house, for friends, family, and paid jobs. One day I thought about how easy it was to use the lathe on wood, so why not carrots. Or the ever elusive potato? As a chef and handyman, why not mix my two passions together and bring the shop into the kitchen and see what would happen.

My cooking life has never been the same.

I look forward to sharing more of my handyman cooking style and tips with you here.
