About your Biscuit Buggy Chefs!
One Chef taught at the hem of his Argentine Grandmother, one Competitive Baker taught by her Irish Grand mother. They crossed paths and decided to take the food world on together.
Francine & Erik began cooking together on a Big Green Egg at the Corbin Kentucky Moonbow Eggfest where they discovered that they both had a common love of adventurous foods. Interestingly enough, the first thing BOTH of them baked when they started their journey to become chefs was Lemon Meringue Pie...at the hands of both Grandmothers on opposite coastlines of the U.S.A.!
Together they have traveled and cooked for various large events, television, and audiences all over the world, always sharing a love of great food, new ideas and exciting ingredients while focusing on learning new techniques and the history of foods from around the Globe. Somehow they are always blending their individual styles into mouthwatering dishes.

ERIK HOLDO began his culinary journey when his Argentinean grandmother began teaching him traditional Argentinean, Spanish and Italian cooking at an early age.
Formal culinary training began in earnest in high school with the help of an associate editor for Bon Appétit Magazine, who had directly studied with Julia Child and Jacques Pepin. Throughout college, Chef Erik worked on cooking lines, until he joined the business world, but never strayed from his passion for cooking and teaching. He describes his current style as Latin/Asian fusion, having a love for both cultures, but frequently presents recipes from every corner of the US and cultures around the world. Erik is a member of the Big Green Egg Culinary Team and has appeared on an internationally heard radio show focusing on food.
