Cooking is a lot like a science experiment. A little of this, a little of that and POOF! You’ve got something magical and delicious on your hands. Did I mention I almost failed chemistry? Yep! Hardest. Class. Of. My. Life.
I remember spilling hydrochloric acid on my favorite jeans, burning an instant hole in them and thinking it was sign I had no business being around chemicals much less mixing them together to produce other substances. Ironic considering I’m now a cook. Maybe that’s why I didn’t start cooking until later in life?
