Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.
My first outdoor cooking memories are full of erratic British summers, Dad swearing at a barbecue that he couldn't put together, and eventually eating charred sausages, feeling brilliant.
Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.
Cooking is like painting or writing a song. Just as there are only so many notes or colors, there are only so many flavors - it's how you combine them that sets you apart.
I'm sorry, if you were right, I'd agree with you.
