Welcome to the Radio Kitchen!
I'm Michael Reining and I've spent about 18 years in kitchens around the San Francisco area. Currently, doing In-home catering for Kitchit.com And more recently consulting chef at Jasper's Corner Tap & Kitchen, also as the Executive Sous Chef at Postrio Café and Bar, South Beach Yacht Club and the Golden Gate Yacht Club in San Francisco. I'm a graduate of the California Culinary Academy, I have cooked in restaurants and corporate catering kitchens, on a ship on the Bering Sea in Alaska, pie shops and even Jack-In-The-Box (my first cooking gig when I was 18), I also enjoy cooking instruction.

On the radio side, I am a 18 year veteran of broadcast radio (read-Disc Jockey) and now nearly 18 years as a kitchen pro, I am putting all the pieces of my life into this project. I am your host for The Radio Kitchen. www.radiokitchen.net
