I am a sufficiently good cook that people pay me, happily and handsomely, to make food for them in their homes, but I suck at writing down recipes. Often my clients will ask me for a recipe and I will give them some bullshit excuse explanation about giving away trade secrets and a wink. The fact of the matter is that most of them exist only in my head and I am often too lazy busy to write them down.
To give me some direction in an effort to change my shiftless-ass habits a place to structure this effort, I started a new blog. Recipes from the Restaurant Refugee is designed to force me to record dishes so I will have a compilation of things I have created when my booze addled brain can no longer recall them. Having them handy for clients is a nice bonus too.
Currently there are very few pictures of my food as I neither posses a digital camera (have I ever hidden my happily Luddite nature?) nor the time when I am cooking to stop and take pictures*. I will do my best to remedy that in the future.
I will be migrating recipes listed on this blog to the new place, and my goal is to post at least three original recipes per week.
Thanks for visiting.
Eat well, drink well, be well, my friends.
* In early September, I plan on having a “Media Dinner” with the express purposes of having a great time with friends and taking pictures of some of my cuisine. If you are a good photographer, interested in trading a good meal for photos, and most importantly interesting (I care more about the quality of the dinner party than the photographs but only a bit more,) or you know someone who is, send me an email – restaurantrefugee(@)gmail.com.
