Food Blogger
One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever we are doing in order to devote all our attention to eating.
No one cooks, cooks alone. A cook in the kitchen is surrounded by generations of cook past, the advice and menus of cooks present, the wisdom of recipe writers.
