    Hi, my name is Jean and I've recently joined your great site. This place has a lot to offer for a wide range of food lovers. My interest in food prep began with my moms culinary curiosity for recreating recipes from Bon Appetit. I began as a dishwasher/prep cook to line cook and then College to study the basics. After spending some time in Banff, Alberta, I had the opportunity to work in Switzerland with an amazing and often tempermental Austrian Chef. I returned to Canada to work in resorts, restaurants and also a hospital. I am currently a Sous chef at a horse racing/casino in Ontario. To this day, I have yet to find that adreline rush/fear factor one gets in the middle of a heavy service with 5 languages(mostly german) all spoken at once; airborne skillets followed by flying rosti potatos, and an irate Chef barking Schnell(faster)!!! Ahh, seems like yesterday, Here's to good eats and Bon Appetit!!!!

    Enjoy the site, and don't miss the conversation with Denise Landis, the articles, reviews and recipes, too.
