I consider myself to be a "food scientist/experimentor" (weird, I know). I'm not all about eating the newest trend of food that has come out. I'm all about creating a taste and my own unique style of food (and sharing it with others).
I love coming up with my own recipes (The Flavor Bible is the best investment that I've ever made!) and I love looking at other recipes; conjuring ways of changing it to make it my own.
So, I say this weekend for the 4th, get inventive! Get that grill out and create a BBQ masterpiece.
