Started falling in love with food when I left home and went to university in a small city in Ontario (80, 000) that for some odd reason, was full of particularly good authentic and international cuisine restaurants. Today, I am still on a quest to find a place that offers an equally delicious hot & sour soup - but to no avail. I remember my first head explosion in the world of food was Carribbean goat curry. Never had I put something like that in my head before. And seeing as I lived off campus for my entire BA, I quickly learned that despite the solid foundations and recipes my mom had quickly taught me before I headed off to school, there was a power in changing them and ramping it up to suit my new found tongue...
Since those early university days, I have been a person who frequently wakes up thinking about what to cook for the family (my Beauty, my 9 year old lad, her nearly 16 year old son and myself)), after going to sleep thinking about the same - food and the absolute pleasure one can experience in the entire process of discovery around it. I love it so much, I have looked into quitting my current profession to spend $15,000 on culinary schools, only to realize that someone has to pay for the bills...to put food into my family's mouths.
So there you have it - me and my passion for food.
