Bob Devon has had a lifelong love affair with food and wine. For more than thirty years, while serving his country—-first, in the United States Navy, and then, in the Department of Defense—he managed to learn as much as he could from his ships’ cooks, and barbequed as a way to relax. Once retired, Devon followed another love by becoming the manager of a tasting room in a California winery. Throughout his varied careers, he has nurtured his passion for cooking, especially his skills on the grill. He and his wife continue to entertain and barbeque for friends and family at their home in Southern California.
