How I became another failed chef...
A long time ago I forgot why I love food so much. I was a burnt out 28 year old, who had worked in a bunch of kitchens from the age of 13 but still hadn't learn a lot about food. I always loved cooking for friends and family but after years of failing to live up to my potential, I gave up. At 24, I went off to college to get my degree in broadcasting and pretty much by that time I had one foot out the door for my culinary career.
The thing is, I've always enjoyed differing cuisines and sitting around a table talking and eating food and having drinks with strangers and loved ones alike. I forgot the simplicity of how food brings each and every one of us together: to share memories, share moments, laughs, tears, announcements, and to have wonderful flavors dancing around on our taste buds. I was reminded of all this from Anthony Bourdain about 4 years ago while I was binge watching "No Reservations."
What I am doing here
Bloggin' and Vloggin food
I started this site because I wanted to talk about my thoughts on all things food. Sometimes it'll be what I attempt to prepare at home. Shopping at differing markets trying to find particular ingredients. Other times it will be my thoughts on a meal I had at a restaurant. It's gonna be a free for all about everything that strikes me about cuisine. Remember, I am an average guy who loves food and putting all this together for the love of cooking. I try to save when I shop, I cut corners when I cook and don't have a ton of fancy tools in my small apartment's kitchen but, I love food. I love differing cuisines. Lets take a journey together and explore the world of food. It's gonna be loose, fun, we're gonna learn something along the way.
