This is our journey of discovering the joy of cooking…together!
Instead of a New Year’s resolution for the 2018 year, I asked my chef husband to be my tutor/mentor/sage (not the herb), teaching me his tips, tricks and wisdom in the culinary department. I figured that after over a decade together, our baker’s dozen year should be a fun journey of cooking.
My husband has been in the food service business since, well, forever (40-ish years). When it comes to the restaurant life, I was always more comfortable in the Back Office and sometimes Front of the House, but never really ventured into the professional kitchen. I had obtained a few skills over the years by observing my husband and then experimenting here and there at home. But fiddling around the kitchen as a novice was no longer enough for me. I had been learning to coordinate the school lunch program for my son’s school and I was ready to learn more and see food from a chef’s perspective. And so began Culinarily Yours on January 1, 2018 as a blog to track my accomplishments.
Now I am taking my apprenticeship to the next level as his sous chef as we take on catering locally and vlogging internationally.
This is our journey, one of chef and wife. It may end up being more than a Hundred-Foot Journey, or possibly an adventure that rivals Julie and Julia, but in the end we pray it’s one that teaches us the joy of cooking…together.
