What’s up everyone? My name is Justice Stewart, and as you can see from this blog, I am a cook. I have never attended culinary school, nor have I taken any culinary classes. I actually have worked in the construction industry for the past 9 years (Update Below). I am also a self-taught cook that has embraced learning the craft as I go on this culinary journey.
It always helped that I had tons of support from friends and family that I’ve prepared many meals for. In fact, in 2011 after all the encouragement, I decided start to this blog to share my passion with food. I was born and raised in NYC, and I have always had a love for good food. Why not eat gourmet at home?
Have you ever walked in a bookstore browsed through cookbooks but decided against buying one because you had no idea what some of the ingredients were? Or view dishes such as poached lobster or cognac shrimp as entrees only a pro chef can prepare? I will try and demystify some of these recipes and help the average home cook prepare gourmet meals. If I can do it, you can do it!
Not only am I obsessed with cooking, I am an avid fisherman and I often prepare many dishes that are ocean to plate. I love to travel the country and experience new things that are trending on the food scene. I’m a person that enjoys meeting new people who share the same interest of food like I do. I often collaborate with other cooks/chefs to do pop up dinners and tastings. Giving back to the community is essential to me and I do this by cooking or speaking at schools and various children charities.
I’m not sure how often I’ll post, but please check back to see what I’ve been cooking up. For more info about me you can visit www.cuisinenoirmag.com & www.wildriverreview.com and read a couple of articles about some of my culinary escapades. I also had the opportunity to help produce a popular online cooking show called “Neighborhood Chefs” with some amazing folks. Episodes can be viewed @ www.ibchannel.tv .

**Update: I officially left the construction industry in 2012 and entered the culinary world on a full time basis. I began working as a sous chef for a catering company serving the offices of LinkedIn at the Empire State Building in NYC. I also spent time working as a sous chef at Madison Square Garden for the VIP clientele during all professional sporting events and concerts.
We are currently filming a cooking show called “Cooking With Justice” (filming resumes soon). My cookbook Mastering the Art of Sous Vide Cooking is being released in December 2018. I am also on the advisory board of the International Sous Vide Association. ISVA provides education, networking opportunities, and experiential events for both, professional and amateur enthusiasts of the sous vide cooking method.
