I love that food is fun. It plays an important role in nourishing our bodies and also in bringing people together in community. It is art and science combined. No matter what your level of expertise and understanding there are no barriers to entry as to who can play. All are welcome. In Ottawa, I have met many great food lovers. I like that we cherish that sense of community that comes with breaking bread together and having a common interest in creating great dishes for ourselves, our families and our friends. Be humble and show respect for food and the joy it can bring as it does its job of keeping us well. If you have criticism to share, always do it with dignity and respect. Food is fun!
