My name is Darren, and I’m a guy who loves to cook.  I love mixing different ingredients together to create an experience for my family and friends.  I want to be moved to feel something — and I strive to do that everyday.  Food is powerful.  I believe that it can even be a moving experience — whether at a celebration or a dinner party with friends.  I started this blog to organize and collect my life’s work.  I want to share my humbled knowledge and experiences with those around me.  You are welcome to join me on my journey!
