Everybody eats.  And at some point most of us cook...at least something.  But when I talk with amateur chefs the conversations too often go right to what to cook, without spending anytime on how to cook.

For me cooking, is about technique.  Sure, recipes are great, but they don't make great food: People do.  My goal is to teach and show people how to cook, so they can take any set of ingredients and make something special. 

Sure, you’ll find recipes on the site.  But rather than simple ingredients and procedures, I try to highlight the techniques needed to create the best possible dish.  And for the most part, I've created cooking videos and recipe videos that I can show, rather than just tell you what to do.  As you read, watch and experiment, think about what your learning, and where else you can apply that skill.  To be an excellent cook, get to know the basic knowledge and master a few solid techniques, because truly, No Recipe is Required.
