Meet Chef John

I don't like to cook. But I must if I want to be green. All my cookbooks have pictures. It is a must. I have to know what the end product should look like. When I found Chef John I was speechless. I watch the food network all the time to watch how the real chefs do it. But to have Chef John available whenever I want and how often I want is a blessing.

Chef John hosts Food Wishes Video Recipes. OMG! He is making cheese, right there. And I can watch it over and over! I read about making cheese in Animal, Vegetable, Miracle and on other blogs and sites but I have never seen it done. It really doesn't look hard. Everyone that has made it says it was easy and I didn't believe them, now I do. This doesn't mean I will run out and make cheese. I still haven't conquered making homemade bread and I have a breadmaker, for gosh sakes! But some day I will and Chef John will help.

I love the way Chef John teaches you how to cook. He has a nice voice and a great sense of humor. He seems to enjoy what he does and that makes a great teacher.

I am blushing. I never thought Chef John himself would stop by my blog. Thanks for the funny comment and thanks for helping us know that making cheese is not that hard.
