It is a humbling experience to realize how little I actually know. In the ever growing cosmos of the kitchen more ingredients are unearthed, techniques rediscovered and questions asked. What I have come to appreciate is learning and teaching go hand in hand. Everyday I learn something new either in the kitchen or which in some way relates to dining. It is important for me to share as much as possible of these lessons. By sharing my experiences and culinary lessons others are willing to share theirs and in the end we all benefit. Today we are part of a culture which is balanced by learning and teaching. Without either balance is not achieved; when they are both equally desired and achieved our success is able to out way failure.
