The crackle of the flame, the warmth of the oven, the smell of char… these are the things that draw you to the kitchen. For you, cooking, just like life in general, is a chaotic swirl of scent and heat and sound. It comes not from diligently following recipes and schedules, but from the heart and the gut and your very breath. Your zest for risk and adventure may bring you into conflict with people who put a high value on unburnt fingertips, and sometimes your instinctual style leads to “unusual” presentations and flavors that may upset the conventional palette, but you don’t mind. You live on the bleeding edge where the tame and predictable perish.
