Born in May, 1975, he was introduced and attracted to the kitchen world since he
was young. His dad runs a pub-restaurant back there in Clavering, Essex, and that's how it all begins. I don't want to talk much about him actually. I just want to express how he inspires me o
n my cookings. D'uh, I don't cook. Haha- But I really like to try it someday. Yes, I can cook some dishes instead of rice, instant noodle or boiled eggs. But my cookings were somehow limited to the Malaysian-Countryside dishes which I learned from several tutors. However, by watching Jamie's salad making, fast-chopping skills, creative mind-blogging ideas of how you can turn a simple menus to an awesome butt-kicking dishes, that's just so damn AMAZING! I was so touched when I saw his garden. In my mind it's like, 'Wow, I wish I have those Doraemon's magic door'. Rosemary, Coriander, Basil, Thyme, Mint, Carrots, Onions, Parsley, anything you need, it's just out of the window. Not just that, he also have his outside charcoal stove which he used sometimes in the show. I was like, 'WOW! I NEED TO GET THOSE! AND THOSE! AND THOSE TOO!'. I know some people might point out that he must be cooking some pork or bacon or use wines, beers, whiskey or anything to marinate and make those dishes so good. Well, to those orthodox-thinking person, count out those 'haram' things and make a comparison with the halal one that can be used. Please.
I was recently search for those kind of cooking herbs tree as I personally wanted to grow them up in my own garden. Yup, I do have a lot and lot of space for some planting (laughing at those apartment-hired readers. ). And I wish someday that I will have a garden just like Jamie's, except that his garden will have those season changing and my garden will only have one or two climate change I guessed. What ever it is, 'Jamie, I wish that I can bring you to my yard and cook for me and me family. Haha- Just kidding. I hope that one day I can meet him in person, and hopefully I can steal some of his cooking skills as I think I was old enough to get into any culinary school.'
~I wish I can cook better than my sisters. ;p
