  • Roasting chicken brings back fond memories

    The whole reason I started cooking was my mother. She was a self-taught, brilliant cook who could effortlessly whip up any recipe with just a glance.

    After years of eating and enjoying her food, I decided that I would give up these silly dreams of becoming a neurosurgeon and pursue a career in the hospitality industry.

    I started out washing dishes at The Tasteful Chef in Ghent when I was 14 as a part-time job after school. I thought it was ironic that my first job cooking didn’t involve any actual cooking, but I figured everyone had to start somewhere.
