Description
Because I m often headstrong, I ve sometimes interpreted classic recipes completely in my own way, and I hope you won t mind. Because I m often impatient, I ve sometimes drawn the recipes because it's faster, and because at times, probably unnecessarily, I worry that you don t think in the same realm as I do, I ve also added memories and photos so you get a sense of what I mean. Just like a formally decorated table, or a beautifully arranged plate, I believe that a cookbook should exude a certain spirit that I think you should be in when you get in the mood to get going in the kitchen.
