  • Intro – Hi I’m Nick My quick presentation is titled, the Humble Chef – of course I will be talking to your about cooking today.
  • Brief disclaimer – I am not a professional Chef – I am far from it. My only qualification around food is that I love to eat it.
  • How can a guy be passionate about cooking.It is definitely my passion and I had no idea. My girlfriend took me to a cooking demo dinner once, so it must have been entered into my subconscious that I love to cook.
  • You can fail at it, regularly if you’re me. I feel that this is one of the best ways to learn and grow. Making accidental mustard gas in the kitchen is a great way to humble you.
  • I love to cook for other people. And if they like the food, that’s even better. I was thrilled when a friend of mine asked me to be a waiter in a mock restaurant for valentines day. I was passionate about it when I made LeLamont a 6 course meal.
  • The hard part is over – but now what do I do? Where do I go? I cannot make it in the restaurant business, but I can improve my life through cooking – so I wanted to be healthy and save money with cooking.
  • I vowed to increase the frequency of my cooking. One thing that I did notice right off the bat is that I was still buying the same amount of food as before.
  • Focus on health – always been a big part of my life, so I wanted to include it in the presentation.
  • Going over average time it takes to prepare dinner.
  • Oh yes I did grow. Without even knowing it. I decided to make a calzone. This was a
  • Oh yes I did grow. Without even knowing it. I decided to make a calzone. This is the tastiest example of personal growth in the history of the world.
