Being a chef for the first time in my, ahem -cough, cough, late 30s is an interesting journey.
I taught myself Latin late in life because it wasn't offered in the rural school in my home town. Still a student of language but one of my favorite phrases is 'Res Ipsa Loquitor'. The thing speaks for itself.
That's what food is to me. It needs no explanation.
And all you need is those four ingredients. Nothing more. Nothing less.
