Hello and welcome to alacuisine.org. My name is Clement and I’m a 25 year old computer engineering graduate turned media design entrepreneur living in Toronto, Canada. While my day job has nothing remotely to do with food, at times I find it difficult to think of much else (especially when I’m hungry).
I’m particularly fascinated by the ingredients, techniques and processes that make what we eat taste mediocre, good, great, or incredible. I’m also interested in food as an experience and believe that a great meal is much more than simply the sum of great food and service.
I should say upfront that I’m by no means an expert in food. I’ve never cooked professionally or been to cooking school, nor do I have a well-trained palate. Having stated my inexperience and disqualifications, I can, however say that I’ve eaten at least two meals every day for the past 25 years, and that I want to learn as much I can about good food and good food experiences, so that I can make them for myself and others.
In the days and weeks ahead I hope to take a look at many interesting food-related topics that I’d like to learn more about. I’m always welcome to any feedback and suggestions you may have, positive or negative.
So in the words of Iron Chef’s Chairman Kaga… Allez cuisine!
(or more grammatically correct: A la cuisine!)
