Food for me is much more than just something to give you the needed energy to get through the day. It's a science experiment, a way to show someone you care, a social activity, and a myriad of other wonderful things all rolled into one. Making a meal with a group of people is a bonding activity like no other. It allows for teamwork, teaching, sharing, and enjoying the fruits of your labor when it's all done. I deeply cherish the feeling of making others feel good by the food that I prepare, and it is one that I will continue to do forever.
