Cooking with ease! Every Jewish Mama's Wish.....

April 22, 2009 10:20

My Blog is for those who love to cook or even for those who just like to eat! The idea is based on simple and quick one liner recipes that can be shared across the globe in an ever yiddishe way! Quickly and Easily...

Whats the inspiration? In this fast paced modern world we all live in who has time to prepare and cook healthy, fresh and delicious meals on a regular basis?

Three great past experiences of my life have led me to write and inspire others along the way. Firstly I used to do product development and marketing for an online 'convenience styled' gourmet food company called; where all meals were prepared in advance by Michelin Star establishments, the idea was superb, you would order your 3 course meal online and within 24 hours, no matter where you were in the UK, your food would be delivered in a very swanky 'coolerbag' - all ingredients were prepared up until the point of cooking, from there you would spend between 10 minutes and 30 minutes putting the final touches together to your own Michelin starred home meal!

The 2nd great experience was that I co-authored a book called 'The Man that Can', which was all in aid of Charity! This book was simply developed by men for men, to cook for their partners! A truly inspirational book, which has had some excellent write ups. The book can be seen on the Norwood website!

And the 3rd most inspirational moment to this whole idea was that I spent many years training as a chef, having qualified from Westminster School of Catering and having worked as a chef for many years its is true to say that one thing I have learnt is that an amazing meal can be made without fuss and in minutes, and you don't need to be a chef to do it!

To make this happen I've created what I call 'Tasty One Liners' that are easy to follow quick kitchen delights.

Add your own, and get sharing! No Long recipes, easy ideas which puts ones mind to work, and really gets those juicy inspirational thoughts going! So get sharing and enjoy!
