We shot my audition video for MasterChef mid-November, shortly before Thanksgiving (please take the time to watch it). In my video I compare the culinary arts to playing music: you can play a note a thousands different ways, in a different riff or different code structure, and that is how I feel about food. I love that you can cook an egg a thousand different ways.
For Christmas I received Harold McGee's book: Keys to Good Cooking: A Guide to Making the Best of Foods and Recipes.
Reading things like this make me understand I am on the right path! I am not going to give up! This path will be laid with golden bricks. It will be divine!
