-i am 26
-i have a passion for food
-i am very tech savvy and computer oriented
-i first found my love of food when i moved to the west coast at the age of 19. being originally from north jersey i was used to getting pizza and italian food quite easily. (not the case in northern california). 7 years later and i'm so good at making pizza it's better than ordering out. in my journey towards pizza perfection i found food is actually quite simple and prepared correctly can be mind blowing indeed. swapping techniques for different ingredients and handling them with great attention to detail is what makes great food. the simpler the better in my opinion. i am quite good now at a few things like braising, roasting, baking some pastries, making sauces, pastas, and many other items. i come home after work and already am forming ideas for inventive ways to prepare dishes or ways to empower existing ones. all day, before i sleep, while i'm sleeping, after sleep, at work, coming home, on the weekend, at the bar, on vacation and especially in the kitchen....i think, dream and live food. always seeking perfection and wanting more out of everything at every minute. timing and pressure is something i both love and hate. i hate the way a fish can get over cooked almost instantly, but love how when done correctly brings out such moist buttery-ness especially when paired with a great sauce (ie.: brown butter vinaigrette, white wine sauce, etc.)
in any case, i am seeking to work in a kitchen and work hard to make my way due to my undying love for food. i really would like to hear any inspirational stories or just regular ones (like mine) if you have any. also, if you feel that i shouldn't even step foot in a kitchen i'd like to hear your thoughts too.
