First of all I must say he is a very good friend; always been a very helpful and professional person. I met Alan in Cancun, Mexico when he took his sailboat, Sea Ruster, to Marina Hacienda del Mar a few years ago, and since then we are very good friends. Last year, I had the opportunity to stay at his home in Fort Laudardale and to know more about his achievements as a Chef and a little more about him as a person. I hope we can continue sharing more often. He is a great friend and a great chef!
