Art worked at a bagel shop, gourmet pizza restaurant, and possibly a dozen or so other restaurants in between. For the past four years, he owned along with his business partner Mark Bergkuist, The Corner Store Café in Unionville, Pennsylvania. Art was the chef creating everything from homemade breakfast treats (he really likes to bake), to gourmet soups, salads, and sandwiches, including a very popular Brunch menu where on Sundays, reservations were highly recommended at The Café. Always eager to learn all there is to know about food and the like, Art surrounds himself with almost two-thousand cookbooks in his library and several dozen different magazines delivered monthly in which he cooks from, honing his skills and furthering his passion.
