New Digs: La Cocina

New Digs: La Cocina
Originally uploaded by Theorris

Here I am in my new kitchen. I have to thank an old girlfriend for showing me that I could cook. Basically my learning to whip up tasty meals was motivated, like most things, by money. I was a fiscally poor academic and could not afford the restaurant bills. I found that with a little work I could create food better than most of the restaurants we were going to.

Cooking is a science of satisfaction for me. I'm not saying that to brag or anything, but am stating an indisputable fact: I gain a great deal of satisfaction out of being able to take raw ingredients and make them into something that is good and good for you. I certainly hope others who consume the food do too.

All right, who wants to come to dinner?



  1. I believe that you have been floating the notion of a curry dinner for years. YEARS.

    Looks like a good kitchen.

  2. I too gain satisfaction from this process; it's visceral and somehow more real than much of what I do. Hopefully I will cook more in 2010.

    Did I smell curry cooking? If so, I'm there.
