Kia ora (Maori greeting that means ‘be well’) !
I have always enjoyed experimenting in the kitchen. Some things go wrong, some go right, but in the end, the whole process makes me very happy. Cooking is my unwind at the end of a working day most of which I spend analysing genetic data from cancers trying to ascertain what is wrong with them. The hope is that ultimately, this data can be used to improve the diagnosis and treatment of the spectrum of diseases called cancer and that’s all I will say on my blog about this matter.
I’ve thought about joining the “food-bloggers” community for a little while but it is a bit pointless replicating efforts and I’ve been scratching my brain trying to come up with a twist to a regular index of recipes. What I did notice on food bloggers’ websites is that everything is pretty and picture perfect. Very few websites highlight so called “kitchen bloopers” which seems strange to me ( http://www.thekitchn.com/thekitchn/tag/mistakes). Much like experiments in a laboratory, things don’t always go right and I want to highlight this in all the food posts I write. In addition, if I have a solution for any calamities, I hope to share them too.
Finally, I have been wanting to work on my writing style and develop it into something I can call my own. It would be greater still if people could sit through my writing without falling asleep, especially when I write about my science. Since I like talking, reading and writing about the food I make, I thought it would be a perfect platform to explore and mould my writing talents (if any).
This blog is born out of my love for cooking, my eagerness to share the wisdom and mishaps of the kitchen with whoever is willing to read my posts and to improve my writing skills.
