Jimmy Smith, inventor of Jim's Pepper Roaster, is a native New Yorker and roasted bell pepper fanatic. Jimmy has returned to his home town after an interesting 25 years of raising and racing harness horses. After impressive wins in the United States (New York, California, and Florida) and New Zealand, as well as a track record in the Hippodrome outside of Paris in Vincennes, France, Jimmy is back to his first love…. cooking.
Self taught after an initial boost from his Mother, Jimmy has always been on the lookout for ways to improve the recipes and methods he learned. Loving the taste and many uses for a roasted bell pepper, either alone or with other foods, Jimmy was looking for a better way to prepare this favorite food. The old tried and true of roasting horizontally and turning, or cooking over an open flame with a fork just seemed wrong.
Now, at the age of 79, Jimmy is ready to share with you the best method for roasting peppers every invented.
