About the Author

Steven W. Siler is a firefighter-cum-chef serving both in the Deep South and the Pacific Northwest.  He is the best-selling author of the Signature Tastes cookbook series. Long marinated in the epicurean heritage of the Deep South, Steven has spent over 20 years in the much-vaulted restaurant industry from BOH to FOH to chef.  In addition, he has served as an editor and contributing writer for several food publications.  When not trying to shove food down his fellow firefighters’ gullets, he enjoys sailing and sampling the finest of scotches and wines, and has an irrational love affair with opera.
