This food blog was going to be called “Because Life Is Short,” because that is how I feel about the time that we have on this planet when you consider all of the places to travel to, foods to sample and recipes to try. But I went with a theme of: “grand chef, petite cuisine”.

I don’t consider myself a grand chef (nor am I remotely French), and I am (like many of us living the high suburban life) challenged by a small kitchen. Once, on eating a slow cooked spiced lamb shoulder that I had prepared, my French friend exclaimed that she did not know that I was a “grand chef”… and nor would you think so when you know me (I tend to display traits of disorganisation and forgetfulness). The “grand” meals that I create are usually “miracles” of creation, much like life itself.

Philosophy
Cook, whenever possible, with fresh ingredients and take note or ask your supplier about the source of the food, for I truly believe that fresh food is the secret to longevity. Fresh ingredients will therefore enhance your chance to sample and enjoy great food experiences for a longer period of time.

The meals blogged here are often inspired from somewhere or someone, and I’ll always acknowledge the source when it exists.
