I think cooking has replaced boys in my life. Now obviously there are certain, uh, differences, but there is a definite sensuality to a combination of fresh, potent ingredients. It's become a major part of my life, health, and happiness as of late. I'm enjoying the sharp and the sweet and the tart and the spicy in a new way. I like standing in the kitchen, perfecting a blend of flavours and then finding ways to present them well, in respect to both taste and visual appeal. I find it easy to cook myself happiness.
