I’m a very unfortunate amateur food enthusiast who is completely untrained from any culinary discipline and absolutely has no skill in anything having to do with food.

I hope you will join me in my neophyte food journey. As the very infamous Chef Auguste Gusteau of the movie Ratatouille always say: “Anyone can cook.”

Happy reading! =)
