Hello Chef,

My father-in-law brought me to your site and to my joyous surprise, i was hooked from day one. You are truly one of a kind, not merely because you showcase such wonderful, delicious dishes but rather the passion and love you posses while cooking and this is vividly unique to numerous other chefs i have every known and trust me i have been lucky enough to know a few renowned folks.
Your videos are life saving to many women like me who had absolutely no clue on how to turn on a stove, you bring a sense of enthusiasm by just looking at you and guess what my husband is enjoying it too. All many thanks to you.
Wish you the very best and DONT ever leave us astray by stopping this wonderful thing you do.
