Intimately touched by his wife’s breast cancer diagnosis and the loss of her mother to lung cancer, Curtiss now channels his professional skills and time toward raising awareness and supporting organizations that are on the frontline in the fight against cancer.

From Chef Curtiss: Foods cooked en papillote are enclosed in a packet of parchment paper or foil and then cooked in the oven. This is in essence a homemade steaming process that allows the full flavor of the food to be captured through the captured steam. This is an excellent way to cook light meats, fish, vegetables and even to reheat pastas with some added garnish ingredients. Feel free to use any variety of mushrooms that you like: chanterelle, shiitake, morel, crimini, and button are all excellent choices.
