Until Then...

As each day passes, I look forward to the next...wondering what it will bring, what new experiences will be presented in my path, what new and exciting opportunities will grace my presence, what life changing situations might occur, both good and bad and what amazing adventures might I embark on. And then there is the food...oh the world of food. What new find will I stumble upon, what new source may I be presented with, what dining experience will be so gracefully bestowed upon me, who will I be able to cook with and what will I be able to cook, and then who will I be honored to cook for? Will I be able to satisfy their every desire as a chef? I look at my food and wonder. Where will this road take me? Will I be able to satisfy myself? I wonder...as I keep cooking and focusing on taste, flavor, ingredients and technique...I wonder...until then. This is just another day with some different variations of the one prior. Experimenting with presentations and compositions of taste.
