My culinary journey started with a pound of bacon and a frying pan. On Saturday mornings, I was always the first one up. and had a fairly specific that started with the “Great Chefs” series on PBS, followed by “Super Friends”.
The second part of Saturday mornings also meant a nice breakfast
I remember watching my father frying bacon one morning, which inspired me to return the favor the following weekend.
The concept of cooking bacon seemed simple.
I started on my tip-toes with a hot pan. Everything was great until I removed the bacon from its plastic sheath. As you can Imagine my technique back then was a little flawed. My efforts to make breakfast in bed for my parents ended up with my father rushing down the stairs, clawing through the smoke to save the house, I will say I had a natural tendency to save the food and did my part by doing to save the bacon in my Batman Underoos.
That passion and curiosity forcooking has never faded.
