If there was one thing I would love to spend the rest of my life doing, it would be dinner parties. I love gathering the great, the good and the groovy (be it in their fabulous finery or backyard best) to wine, dine and have a good time.

The thing I love about cooking is that nobody is born good at it, it's one of those few things in life that when you practice enough, you eventually get very good at. As I've cooked, I've also discovered that the best meals come from improvisation, not straight from the recipe book - when it comes to cooking, there's a lot of room for error, and sometimes those errors are pure magic (this is where I wish cooking had a save-as button because sometimes it is near impossible to replicate that perfect mistake).

But perhaps the best thing about cooking is that you get to entertain thereafter - because cooking for one isn't any fun. Which makes for a happy home full of love and laughter, and above all, great company.
