After a reader recently asked me about my profession and how I started cooking, I thought it would be a good idea to tell you a little bit more about myself since the profile on the side doesn't do much. I was almost done writing the long post yesterday, then POOF. All gone in one fatal click. Doh!
So here it is again...
I had a few cookbooks in college but didn't cook much back then except for some easy Korean recipes, turkey sandwiches, and pasta with jarred tomato sauce. Otherwise college was filled with much junk food, take-out, burritos, burgers, beer. However I watched FoodTV obsessively though.
After moving back home I finally started to cook more. Having a job, a nice kitchen to cook in, and Boy the willing taster was motivating. I think the first dish I ever cooked for Boy was Seared Beef Carpacccio with Arugula, Balsamic & Parmesan. Cooking became a hobby for me.
Then early 2005 I discovered the food blogging community! This was pretty much food-life-changing. I didn't even know what blogging was before then and I had no idea there was an actual community of people so passionate about food and madly driven to cook and eat delicious dishes. Food blogging and loving to cook is probably one of the best things that's happened to me.
But I didn't know if I myself could have a blog, being technology-averse and a cooking-newbie. Also writing never being my forte in school. Who the hell would read it anyways? Well I started one anyways I am so glad I did because I've discovered so many great blogs.
Thank you readers for keeping my blog alive and motivating me to cook and write! :D
