I love this community! It is inviting and the people are kind, honest, realistic and supportive.
I am really grateful to have such great responses from both professionals in the industry
and those aspiring to become a great cook. I have two children which is a pressure to
find a career that pays enough for the bills and make me happy in the same time.
I know that when you love something it always turns out fine in the end.
It is true that I will be close to my mid 40's when I become a seasoned professional
but I am sure that if I love this craft as I seem to then all will be great.
I am 33 but I have the heart of a child and it will never go away and less having two
wonderful children and a beautiful wife by my side.
I do have a great passion for food and I know it because every time I see ingredients
euphoria shines inside of me. I come from a South American/Italian background
and I have great memories involving food. I remember both my grandmother(nonna) and
mother making homemade pasta and sauces during special events and how happy
I felt at that young age watching them go threw the process. I have a music background
and I love to write but my passion for cooking was dormant and unfortunately it awakened
later it life. The great chef Marco said that the most important aspect is to cook from the heart and
I that is what I feel when I make something for my family and friends. I also know that it is
better to keep to one's roots by expressing it on every dish one makes.
I opened my heart to all of you wonderful people and I do this because I feel comfortable
and at home in this online cooking community.
Thank you for reading.
