About me

What about me… I’m a pretty ordinary South African male, Married to High Energy Physicist, and have a gorgeous son called Cabhán

A few years ago, I was supposed to be studying for my MCSE exams. Of course anything is more interesting than studying, and I ended up watching “Carlton food network” with my Mom, who was at home recovering from back surgery, And that’s where it all started… Leading me down a path where I have become passionate about all good food and wine (or anything with a % sign on a bottle)

I don’t have any formal training, and I don’t think there is anything special about the food I make. Many times I’ll pretty much sit down in front of the fridge, to see whats in it, and just start cooking supper without any clue where I am going to end up. Other times I’ll have some idea, and suddenly change my mind half way through. There are many brilliant recipe books and cooking shows out there, that all show you how to make wonderful meals, Most of them though, require some amount of preparation. At least with regards to either buying the ingredients, or being lucky and having them all available when you decide to start cooking. I dont know about all of you, but I hardly every have everything I need for a recipe. This got me thinking about if I what I do is..

Cooking… by Accident or by Design.

It was through this idea, that this “blog” came to life. Join me while I write about all my accidents, mishaps, and hopefully sometimes, some really good tasting, and looking meals
