Why we cook...
Because it is the easiest way, that I am aware of, to bring a smile to someones face.
We are blessed with an seemingly endless supply of ingredients. All with their very own flavour, texture and other unique characteristics just waiting to be paired with their perfect match. Cooking is my way of expressing myself through these ingredients.
I believe that all people deserve to be fed well, and if one decides to cook for others, said food should be respected, properly cooked and loved. I believe that love is an ingredient that can be tasted. If someone cooks for you that has a deep passion and respect for food it will always taste better. No love, no point.
Cooking is my Life. Let me share it with you.
I love to feed people, it makes me feel like I’m helping them in some way by making sure they are well fed.
But it is even more satisfying when I can make a dish that makes them feel like they are somewhere else other than a dining room, whether it be food they don’t normally come across, or a food that triggers a great memory.
There is an endless amount of room for creativity within the culinary world, and it enables me to express myself through my food.
"What tastes fantastic about it? Why is it so special? Can I make this? Should I share this with anyone?" These are questions I ask myself when I come across food that, to me, tastes like heaven.
Artistically, I love the way food can come together on a plate. It makes me feel like I created a masterpiece.
With enough patience, you can make anything happen.
