I am currently taking my masters in social work, but cooking is my passion. I just would not be able to stand the hours working in a restaurant. I would never see my husband. So I am an amateur chef. I judge cooking contests like the Canadian national BBQ tournament etc. and love cooking for friends and family. I have a cookbook in process. Who knows if I will ever try to publish it but I will definitely give it as gifts to friends and family. My favourite parties to host are theme parties eg. I Okboberfest, Mexican and Thai etc. I generally do the research and each person can either choose from the recipes I have found or bring one of their own. I like to give the option since a lot of people don't necessarily have any recipes for that particular theme party.
Anyway its fun. I nice break from University and a really good excuse to get together with friends and family.
My other favourite things are gardening, knitting, sports and fitness. I also volunteer for a nursing home working with altzheimers and senile dementia patients, and for big sisters and I work part time for Planned Family Networks matching young adults with mental and / or physical challenges with a network of people they can count on when their parents can no longer take care of them.

I love ethnic foods. Thai is my favourite but I love italian, greek, mexican, asian (pretty much anything really spicy. But I still also cook from my grandmothers 1938 cookbook too (the old favourites.)
My favourite restaurant meal was from the red devil. It was called Wood Roasted chicken with angel hair pasta. It had chicken, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, zuchini, garlic onion, and olive oil favoured with oregano, and dried chilies (I think). Anyway they are not around anymore but my friend and I spent 5 years trying to replicate and we believe we have (Thats how much we liked it.
A twist on the football quote winning isn't the only thing it is everything ( I believe it was Lombardi)......Food is not the only thing it everything.
We may find in the long run that tinned food is a deadlier weapon than the machine-gun.
