Daniel

Hi, my name is Daniel and I am passionate about cooking and have made it my mission to answer as many open questions related to cooking and food as possible.

I am by no means a professional cook. But cooking is a hobby that I have loved for the past 20 years and I am getting better by the day.

I hope you will enjoy reading on my website and that you will find out things about food, beverages, and cooking you didn’t know before.

Happy cooking!
