The art of food~

I love food, I love eating food, looking at food, and making it. I love making it look good. There is nothing more exciting to me than a plate that looks really cool with sauces and different colors that make a plate shine.

This picture I took at the Sooke Harbor House, at first glance they look like flower arrangements but really they are very fancy meals on a plate. As a chef you always want to do different things, adding colors that change the way it looks. Sauces that change the taste. The meat can be the same, and yet it could taste so different, depending what you do with it.

I love food, one of the things that I really like is going to town, like today I went on what we call Town run, were I buy food for the school, What I really like about it is I see all the ingredients and I can touch them, and smell, and really know if I want to use them. The Market is great; I love to buy vegetables from there. Safe of Foods is great not only because I see new products that we can use but also because the people that work there are great, today they gave me 9000 extra save on more points, yeah they really like me.

I love the new places that I find as well Like Amie and I's favorite bakery, its called the True Grain Bakery we love it, they make all there own bread. Organic grain that they mill them selves, the bread is so good. They make the best Chocolate buns.

I also love cheese, mmm so good, fresh goats milk cheese, there is a place I found one day its called Hillary’s cheese, and this man makes all his own cheese.

More and more I hope to find more places like the bakery and cheese place to find more local and 'Organic' ingredients now as most of you know I'm not a Organic kind of guy, but I do like the Idea of it, and today as I hear on the news the government is trying to make it more consistent. I never believed that it was consistent. I found it hard to buy Organic butter for $8 instead of $4 per pound when you can't really taste the difference.

I love food, I get excited about it, but you know who I love, Amie, I love Amie I love talking to her, seeing her, spending time with her she is so wonderful to me, she is the most wonderful thing thats happened to me. Thank you Amie for being so good and special to me.
