 It is a rare thing to find a totally original recipe.  Many of the recipes on this website are my own creations, others I've loved and had for so long that I can't remember where I got them.  Even the recipes that I claim as my own borrow ingredients or techniques from others.  It's impossible not to.  Every chef stands on the shoulders of every chef that came before and on the shoulders of her peers.  So to all those chefs who came before, to every friend who has shared a treasured family recipe and to every person who has ever written a cookbook - Thank you, thank you, thank you for your knowledge, efforts and inspiration.  I would not be who I am today without you.
