It's me!

Raised in rural South-Western Ontario, I had the unique opportunity to learn about food from the ground up. Living on a hobby farm in my formative years allowed me to see the natural processes that take place long before food reaches the plate.

I started working in kitchens at 17, when I was away at college. I went through the usual progression from dishwasher to line-cook. I eventually was able to apprentice with a Swiss pastry chef, who taught me most of what I know about desserts and confections. I went on to work in a few other small kitchens, before ending up in my current position as a cook with a major corporation.

Although I still work with food on a daily basis, I find myself more-or-less back to being a home cook/weekend patissier. I hope that by sharing some of my experiences, I can possibly inspire others to get creative in the kitchen.

    Your site looks really clean.
    Would you mind telling me what you’re using to get your flickr photos.

    I take the photos myself. I use a Sony cyber-shot digital camera. I upload them to Flickr from my computer, then, in flickr, I right-click the picture, click properties, and it’ll get you the photo’s url. If you post that to your site, you won’t have any wait time for the pics to load on the site.I hope I answered your question. I’m not 100% sure what you are asking.
