There's something about being in the kitchen and creating a meal or a dish that resonates with me. I love looking at cookbooks, tweaking recipes or perfecting a dish that I tried somewhere and want to make myself. I think it all comes down to a desire to share some love. When I cook, I think about the person or people I'm cooking for. What kind of things do they like? What foods or combination of flavors will appeal to them? It's all about bringing everything together so that it's as delicious as it can possibly be. Because my absolute favorite part of cooking is when someone tastes what I've made and they get "The Look." I get such joy and almost a rush when a friend, family member, co-worker or new GGF customer takes that first bite and their eyes light up, they smile, nod their heads and say "Oh my God, that's the best ....I've ever tasted!" It makes us both happy and isn't it great to be happy?
A friend of mine, Tony used to say when someone complained about a dish they had made not tasting just right or not being as well received as they had hoped it would be, "It's because that dish aint got no love in it." He knew that part of what makes good food great is the infusion of loving care that a homecook or world renouned chef puts into their creations. When people cook with a passion it comes across.
That's why on our labels it says, "Taste the magic, share the love." When I cook I put some love into everything I make. I hope you enjoy my offerings!!
