Remy: Oh, him? He's nobody. 
Gusteau: Not nobody-- he is part of the kitchen.
Remy: He's a plongeur or something. He washes dishes or takes out the garbage. He doesn't cook.
Gusteau: But, he could.
Remy: Uh, no.
Gusteau: How do you know? What do I always say? "Anyone can cook!" 

every day, food offers us the opportunity to gather with our loved ones and to engage with the world around us. 

so often, we hear the phrase "...but i can't cook." i honestly believe that everyone is capable of cooking a delicious, nutritious meal from scratch-- it is not a matter of ability, but only a question of inspiration, desire, and confidence (and some trial and error!). this website will guide you, step-by-step, in creating simple yet delectable, restaurant-quality dishes. this is not another fine-dining, pretentious, esoteric website, but rather an approachable and user-friendly companion to help discover the hidden chef in you!

"You must be imaginative, strong-hearted. You must try things that may not work, and you must not let anyone define your limits because of where you come from. Your only limit is your soul. What I say is true-- anyone can cook... but only the fearless can be great."  -chef gusteau

"You have creative gifts. You are a gifted musician or mechanic or teacher or dancer or woodworker or organizer or landscaper or quilter or preacher, and God wants you to use your gifts for his glory. He doesn’t want you to waste them or hoard them. He wants you to use them to benefit those around you and to bring him honor. He wants you to steward your gifts, not waste them."

-Stephen Altrogge
