The musings of a former London PE guy turned Silicon Valley technophile
I love food.
Our family would rarely to go out for dinner when I was growing up. My Mom would spend hours of her day preparing meals for our family and I never appreciated this. I was the kid that was bringing leftovers of shredded pork and rice for lunch (pretty embarrassing for a 10-year old kid!) while everyone else had peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. All I wanted was to be “normal” and have a bologna sandwich in my lunch box.
It wasn’t until I got older that I appreciated the value of a home-cooked meal. My Mom was sooo ahead of the times with banh mi - I would be the coolest kid at the playground these days.
Nowadays, I cook at home as often as I can. Not only is it fun and relaxing but it is also one of my favorite things to do in the world.
I’ve competed in a few amateur Iron Chef / cooking challenges and watch the Food Network channel all the time. My dream is to compete on The Next Food Network Star. I would get my ass handed to me, but it would be fun!
