I am a classically trained chef. In my life I have been a logging lorry driver in Canada, bouncer in a rave club and a gay bar, ran a shelter for runaway kids, wrote books, hunted treasure, worked in a gaming company's story department, and hiked every continent (yes, that includes the arctic circles, no it wasn't as much fun as I thought it would be). I also cooked a lot, in greasy spoons and fancy white table cloth places with Michelin stars.
Man spricht Deutsch (wer erinnert sich überhaupt noch an diesen alten Schinken?). Oder Englisch. Oder, nach drei Bier, ein Bisschen Niederländisch oder Französisch.
