danielo's recipes haven't caught on yet
I worked as a restaurant cook in my twenties and early thirties. This is an experience that very nearly killed my culinary curiosity and creativity. Luckily, both survived. I now work as a community mental health counsellor, an occupation better suited to my introspective nature and more in line with my desire for a deeper connection to other people.
