I have years of practical experience but no formal training. I’ve had exactly 2 cooking lessons in my life - One with Emeril in NO and one in Paris. I cook down home food with a Southern/Cajun/Tex-Mex flair. That’s it. I understand the science and the tools better than most.

Most people under the age of 30 have no idea what goes on in the kitchen. They use the microwave, toaster and the coffee maker and that’s all. They have no desire to learn to really cook for themselves and have never had to do it.

Their grannies and mothers didn’t teach them and they probably never had a Black maid who could cook like Minnie in “The Help.” That’s how I learned.

I don’t just mean cooking. I think you have a natural talent for teaching. You could have done well in academic medicine because you have REAL experience. When I was concerned about my dad’s acute renal failure last month, you broke it down so I could understand, as well as the hospitalist, but with more detail. You don’t just soak up information when you are interested in a topic, you are able to explain it to others, be it cooking, ammo, or medicine. Just sayin’...
