    Hello, my name is Dário and i am looking to travelling around the world and mastering my art. My idea is to run around 5 years around the world (if possible, get to know all continents.) I had just started my research and then i found this site, so I would like it if my fellow colleagues had...

    Slowly, but surely, our new house is becoming our home. There are many things on our seemingly-endless list of things to do, but going to visit a friend has given me an excuse to slow down and fill my new kitchen with the smells of home. Juicy local blueberries, gala apples, and some...

    I got the call. After two months outside of my favorite professional kitchen, after two months of existential uncertainty and genuine concern for the future of our industry and out collective lives, I got the call. I told my Chef "no" Covid is still upon us. Last Friday, on May 8, 2020, our...

    One of the largest sacrifices that we in the hospitality industry make is the time away from our families. This is the industry that all people depend upon daily. We work Christmas, New Year's Eve, Thanksgiving, etc. Many cooks, especially those in senior positions, spend more time in their...

    When I order sausage links (specifically, breakfast sausage) from a restaurant, or pay extra to get the pre-cooked links, I (generally) get a nice, tender sausage link that practically melts in my mouth, and doesn't have a skin covering. However, when I buy bulk uncooked breakfast sausage links...

    I love steak. And chicken. And bacon. Did I mention that I love bacon? You're probably wondering why someone who has very clear carnivorous obsessions tendencies would be posting about chickpeas. You couldn't get anything further removed from a steak than this humble legume. But these easy...

    With the onset of the cooler weather, my mindset and appetite have made a definite shift from the usual summer fare to cravings for comfort food. While each person's definition of comfort food may be different, it's pretty hard to ignore the satisfaction factor of potatoes and cheese. That's why...

    Myths and misinformation abound in the cooking world. From old wives tales to supposed anecdotes, much of what we have been taught is just downright wrong. Many myths just lead to added steps and time to your food preparation, and in the long run, an inferior product. Although most of this...

    So, remember when I made ribs here and then the time before that here? Well, it looks like we've become a bit of a rib house in the last little while. I ran across this recipe for sticky Asian ribs in my newsfeed a while back from Apple of My Eye and I couldn't get them out of my head. They...

    I think we've hit a heat wave over here on the west coast. Other places may look at our low 30 temperatures and think, "That's nothing!" Well, it sure doesn't feel like nothing to me! I'm the type of person who would rather be too cold than too hot. You can always put on another jacket to warm...

    So I guess the title for this post is somewhat misleading... This can't really be called a lasagna but, to economize on words in the title, that's what I went with. I do hope the purists out there won't be too scandalized, but you'll understand as you read on. Easter weekend was upon us and I...

    I recently got a manual pasta machine. You may recall that I received an all-in-one machine from my Aunty Rose (which works great), but I wanted to also have the option of literally cranking out my own fresh pasta. The Gluten Free Girl has a fantastic recipe for fresh pasta that I had been...

    I usually make a flavoured butter and stuff it under the skin of the breast and rub it all over the chicken before roasting. This time around, I felt like chicken with a bit more of a kick... I thought, wait a minute, why don't I try doing a barbeque chicken in the oven? I had some barbeque...

    Just a short one... I had a weeknight hankering for some crispy fish but wasn't about to break out the deep fryer. Actually, I don't even own one... Anyway. I used basa fillets because that's what I had, but you can use any fish you fancy. This method is gluten free, healthy, and satisfying...

    So I'm starting back at work this week and it's already been quite the adjustment. I think Baby E has been dealing with it better than I am... Just a quick post for now about my kitchen frenzy the day before going back to work. Being in the kitchen and making this with my hands calms me, and I...

    I understand your skepticism, but a gluten-free flatbread recipe with no yeast, eggs, soy, or dairy can taste good! This gluten-free flatbread recipe has no yeast, eggs, soy, or dairy in it. Yup. You heard me right. I was a bit worried at first too. But with being advised to experiment with...

    D and I recently had an amazing (awe-invoking, happy-dance-inspiring, we-are-still-talking-about-it-it-was-that-good) dinner at La Quercia in Vancouver to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It's been three years already?! Crazy. We had the 7 course family-style menu, which runs $50 per person...

    Passion of a Chef With the advent of the internet, food channels, cooking shows, and celebrity chefs on TV, cooking has suddenly become some sort of glamorous.
