ABOUT WOODFIRE CAFE:
It all started with a dream. But this dream was not to open up the finest restaurant the Inland Empire has ever seen. Oh no. The origin of this dream was quite simple. To get out of telecommunications. Entering the infancy of his old-adult life, Jesse Casillas, had decided that he had had enough. With a mid-life crisis on hand and a stomach full of ambitions and Alka-Seltzer, Jesse began his journey to look for new reasons to roll out of bed in the wee hours of the afternoon.
Seeing Jesse in his state of decay, Debra (Jesse’s wife) was devastated. With Jesse staying at home all day watching the cooking channel, how else was she to stay up to date on her shows? Action had to ensue. “Hey Jesse, since you like cooking so much, why don’t you cook for other people?” proclaimed Debra. Being the stoic man that he is, Jesse refused the notion. Until that fateful day while watching Guy Fieri’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. After watching a man pour his life’s work into a ball of mozzarella cheese stuffed with cream and topping it with olive oil and tomatoes, Jesse was thoroughly impressed. This man was a master of his craft. Inspiration had struck, and the idea emerged. “Hey, since I like cooking so much, why don’t I cook for other people?” And thus his pursuit to bring the finest quality Neapolitan style pizzas the Inland Empire has ever tasted.
