    Good Cooks

    I'm not a chef.  I could never be a chef in the real world cause I don't have the stomach for a lot of things when it comes to cooking. I think I'm pretty good at it when I put my mind to it.  I'm lucky to have a husband who cooks good.  He's the one who taught me lots when it...

    Always was always will be.

    Even at the young age of 9 or 10 I liked to cook, and for several reasons. I am the oldest of four kids. Two brothers, identical twins 2 years younger and a sister 6 years younger. So it was a way to help out around the house and I got meals I wanted and the way I liked them...

    I have a question, well a few.

    I am 19 and a sous chef formerly was a pastry chef and a line cook it started baking in a coffee shop when I was 16. Somewhere else offered me a job as sous chef just down the block. The money is a little better but would this slow my progress to become a head chef?

    Passion In The Kitchen

    I used to hate cooking when I was younger. I always swore that I could never slave over a hot stove until the cooking bug bit me. I started making random dishes or dishes out if the cook book but I would use my Mum & hubby as a Guinea pig because I'm such a picky eater. My...

    Chef Groupie

    This should probably be a confession, but there is nothing sexier than a man that can cook! If there's an open kitchen when I'm dining out, I'm always at the table closest so I can watch the action. I don't know what it is about it that's such a turn on. I've dated eight...

    I have cooked professionally

    for about 7 years now. I have such mixed views about this profession as it has so many good and bad qualities. I love what I do and I'm good at what I do but the money never backs up how hard I have to work. I recently got my first full time sauté position and I love it besides...

    Clarified Stock

    I read a Marco Pierre White quote which said that he isn't a chef because you can only call yourself that if you're currently working in a commercial kitchen. Is that fair? [Not my favourite chef. I wouldn't mind meeting Raymond Blanc though]. - Vivas

    Yes this is just one of the many jobs I have in

    my house. I am not all that great at it but mostly because I don't have the time or patience to stand in front of the counter and stove cooking. Once in a while I don't mind but otherwise I usually like to keep it fairly simple.
