Yvette is the epitome of a world traveler. From her humble beginnings in the Heartland of this country, she took a great leap traveling to and schooling in South Africa during her college years. During her time across the pond she had the opportunity to travel to many of the neighboring countries as well as Europe (France, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, The Netherlands and England) sampling their food and soaking in their culture. It did not take long for her open heart to revel in this once in a life time experience and to capitalize on its advantages. During her tenure she teamed up with friends in the food business working as a hostess, server, and consultant in an Israeli and Italian restaurant.
Yvette has a Masters degree in education. For the last 15 years she has worked as an executive in education consulting and has a successful career as a Performance Improvement Director for a large team scattered across the country. Her business allows her to experience regional food all over the United States on a regular basis- one of her favorites is the Southwestern cuisine of Arizona. Her personal and professional input as a business partner breathes fresh air into Tim’s busy life.
Steve is the son of a successful chef. He grew up in a home where, obviously, no one would go hungry, but the expectations where greater than that. With this up bringing, Steve approaches every meal as a chance to experience the best of the best, specializing in haute and nouveau cuisine. He was cooking dinner parties and impressing the “girls” before hosting dinner parties was cool (yes I was there).
Steve has a professional degree from the Pennsylvania School of Culinary Arts. He has developed menus and worked and trained in more restaurants than he would care to mention. He is currently an executive for one of the largest food service distribution companies in the world.
Tony is considered by many to be the next mayor of Tampa Florida. He and his family have lived just outside the city since his birth. Tony is a board certified Anesthesiologist and home cook extraordinaire. Being a potential candidate for Mayor, or other public office, Tony has had the pleasure of meeting restaurant owners, investors, and other simple people, like us, during his quest for the perfect meal.
Tony lives on the waters of Tampa bay. He is an active fisherman and proud owner of multiple crab cages. I do believe I have heard him giggle over the fact that I pay high dollar for stone crab claws to be shipped to me while he pulls off more than he and an army can eat for free.
Despite his subdued impression, Tony takes his dining experience quite intensely,
ever cognizant of flavor and presentation of his meal. His home meals, as many can
contest, are beyond sublime, specializing in Latin and Caribbean cuisine. We, at
On The Doctor’s Table, think that Tony’s true talent lies in the kitchen.
