Although I've always cooked, I didn't really get into it until after I got divorced. Part necessity, as I had to eat. But mostly due to a genuine interest in food. Over the years I have progressed in the kitchen and my family and friends seem to think I am a better than average cook. They have even surprised me by extending their congratulations on the occasional flash of brilliance! LOL! The bottom line is that I love to cook and enjoy experimenting with different foods from all over the world.
