About Rafael

Member since: Apr 4, 2014

I remember playing with my siblings that we owned a restaurant and we all did different things. I do not remember how we cooked the food or how it even tasted. I am sure we just had to eat it! ;-). I remember a happiness overtook me to see my sister and other brothers laughing and describing the dish we put together. It was a joyful time that keeps coming back to me over and over. Today, I do a lot of cooking at home for my family. I am a recipe guy. I have not been able to memorize the recipes and do them without looking but I guess some day I will attempt to do that. I enjoy cooking but best of all, I enjoy seeing my family give me thumbs up (and yes, sometimes thumbs down) on the dishes I prepared for them. I have been thinking lately that I want to be my own boss. I am close to being 50 and I want a little more freedom (maybe) or I want a little more control over my daily life. My job is very satisfying and it has provided for a lot of goodies for me and my family. However, I feel like it is time for a change. My dream is to some day be able to set up a small dessert shop where I live. I probably will look for a partner and work things out this way. I am taking this course to learn the basics. In addition, it will be a way to find out if this is really what I want to pursue next. I think it will be money worth spend even if I never get a shop open. I will be able to provide enjoyment for my family and friends with delicious, healthy desserts.
