Cooking, food, food preparation, different ingredients and tastes are all things that I am fascinated by. I absolutely love cooking and find making a big meal incredibly relaxing. I love to prepare food for others and entertain. I am fortunate to have many friends who are willing to try all my culinary experiments. As an only child I have been blessed with the opportunity to experience many adult flavors and tastes at a young age. This has instilled in me my love for gourmet foods, which I consider one of life’s greatest luxuries. My favorite food as a child was escargot (and still reigns number one on my favorite food list today) which leads me to my conclusion that anyone can really like anything, you just have to try it. Because of this I try everything once. The world of flavor is so vast that I don’t want to miss out on anything that I may truly like, but was too "chicken" to try. (and yes, I have tried chicken feet) Although I do love fine foods I am not a “food snob” a nice squished grilled cheese made with Wonder Bread and Cheeze Whiz is on my top ten favorite foods list too. As far as food types are concerned I really do like just about everything, especially ethnic food. I am enjoying alot of Thai and Arabic food right now and also favour Greek and South American cuisine also. Yumm! I just love food!!
