#life “ I realized the more #fun I had, the more relaxed I was #working, the better I worked.” -#billmurray #letgo #whocares #itjustdoesntmatter [Caption: I just ate a #liquidnitrogen treat aka #dragonsbreath] by @chefshelton of @merchantroots  photo cred @joshfoolovesyou  #soupcoolers
#Women have been cooking much longer than #men. Yet, when it comes to innovation in #food, history has dismissed them. “ I was confronted with this issue within my own career. Especially when people approached me in support suggesting that my "cooking talent" was acquired from #Michelin restaurants and not my #mother; that I was "elevating Vietnamese cuisine” suggesting my mother’s food was inferior. And how “informal” my mother’s cuisine and cooking abilities are. Even though her techniques were acquired grassroots style, it’s generation-old wisdom. And pre-dates all modern kitchens.”-@cheftudavidphu 💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥💥Photo cred @intersportbuzz #storybehindthepicture [A snippet from Taste Buds: Chefs Giving on @abcnetwork] @cheftudavidphu Cooking with his auntie in  #phuquocisland And she is smoking him! *grating #papaya She is the real #topchef ❤️❤️❤️ @tien_doremon29

@StempleCreek Beef is best #beef in the nation. Their Angus #beef is on certified #organic #pastureland and #grassfed all the while implementing ethical and sustainable farming practices such as #carbonfarming. Loren’s family ranch’s products are ridiculously delicious. Don’t believe me? Try it.

We didn’t have much to celebrate during #thanksgiving, especially as a kid. My parents were laborers and always working during the holidays. As I developed my skills in cooking, I’d look forward to #thanksgiving to #cook for my parents. That remains true until this day. I am thankful for my parents sacrifices for my opportunities. #gratitude 🦃 #happythanksgivng 🦃 photo cred @sfmamakoala
