Was my passion for cooking becoming a chore?
I found myself after my last post in December, falling out of love with my job! What you may say, a Louisiana boy not enjoying cooking, much less the final product…Impossible! Now I have always loved what I cook, sometimes though, the client isn’t always easy to love. Perhaps, I was doing it for the wrong reason…money, the quasi-celebrity status, the praise…not sure, but I had to find the passion once again. Reflection time!!! Why did I start what I am doing? Because I loved it, that’s why. I loved the cuisine of South Louisiana and I wanted everyone to be able to experience what makes us America’s greatest food city. What about the opportunity? Being a one-man ambassador of all things Cajun/Creole with time for my family and friends…why of course, only a fool would pass up that opportunity. Boredom??? Maybe I should learn something new, that always keeps it exciting…enter the Flavor Bible! It’s was time to become absorbed in food, flavors and presentations. Guess what? It worked! I’ve always heard that one never works a day in their life if they love what they do…guess I’m back to “not working”!
