I love my food, and I love to cook and bake, and anyone who knows me will confirm that.
I decided at the age of 14 that I wanted to become a chef, which came as a surprise really as both my parents were average in the cooking department, with the odd experimental flourish into Chinese cooking. However, as with a lot of things in the mind of a 14 year old boy, boredom levels increased, and with suggestions that “there is no money in catering”, I decided after passing my catering exams that it was not a career choice I was to take.
It is now 25 years after passing those exams, which were pitiful to say the least, and I am into food more than ever. One friend said that I missed my calling in life as I talk about food, and cooking with such passion. Knowing what I know now, I wish I had decided to go with my passion and become a chef. I am 42 very soon, and know that it is too late to change my career path, even though I am between jobs, which is a shame, so I look to have a career in my own kitchen, serving food to my partner, and any guests that I invite along the way.
