ChopSizzlePop.com is about claiming the life you love and living it fully. We are a husband and wife team, and we love food.

Many years ago, we lost our sweet son to an incurable condition and everything we knew changed forever. After facing our fears, self-discovery, and many tears—we decided that the only way to move forward was to rebuild our lives around things that we love.

We launched ChopSizzlePop.com with a 10-week working organic farm tour through Northern Italy. We harvested olives, stomped on grapes, and made stinky cheese—all of which appears on CSP-TV and in the archives of this blog. Next, we moved to New York City to continue our quest. I became the VP of Editorial for the Rosengarten Report (a James Beard award-winning publication written by David Rosengarten), Troy has been getting back into real estate, and we’ve been making films and TV shows.

If you are on a quest for the life that you love, savor life through your taste buds, or simply want great food information—you have come to the right place. Scroll through our tabs for chef recommendations, recipes, and a web series on Italian food traditions (CSP-TV).

To life,
Carole & Troy Amber
