“He who fails to plan, is planning to fail – Winston Churchill” There are many things that I don’t know about food and cooking and I actually hope that I never do; I don’t want to live a life where I know it all, that’s no fun.  What I do know pretty damn well though [...]

So, what's different, you ask? Ok.  So we took a little break from posting creative and inspirational stuff about food, restaurants, chefs, opinions and stuff that most people do during their leisure time, and which always involves food in some form.
