A little background...

A little background; in an alternate universe or previous/future incarnation, I know I am a chef. I originally taught myself how to cook because my mom was such a horrible one, and once you have the instincts down and a lot of the basics, then it's just a matter of being a sponge anytime you go out to eat, knowing what to look for at the market, and scoring choice ingredients. There is just as much an art to cooking on a budget, because most of the time I'm not up to breaking the bank at Garden of Eden - at that point, you might as well go out to eat.

Now that I have a decent kitchen and access to the formidable old world 9th Avenue markets, i'm constantly experimenting. I'm not a recipe guy and the only time I really follow set procedures or recipes is with the more traditional Japanese food which I will tirelessly pursue to perfection.

That all said, when we're all rich and famous, we'll get around to opening that restaurant, but in the meantime, I'm gonna post any happy accidents I have in the kitchen so you can try it out for yourself. I've written other creations here and there so I will have to dig those up...
