Most recipes tell you what to do—they don't tell you why.


My cooking philosophy?

When you understand why you’re supposed to do what a recipe tells you, you will quickly become a better, more confident cook.  You’ll be able to play with ingredients, design your own recipes, and delight the people you love.

Knowing how to cook for your friends, your family, a significant other—just knowing how—is special. It doesn’t have to happen every day.  It doesn’t have to be perfect every time.
