Food is not just about Eating, you have to know how to chose the right foods, you have to know how to prepare and cook food, which is part science, part math, part nutrition, part taste awareness,
part focus and discipline,
part time management, part skill, part love, part sharing, and on top of that, it's an important part of life that has many rewards and benefits. Never under estimate the value of food and the value of patience and the fine art of preparing and cooking food.
