We both started cooking early. 3(me) and 5(my husband). I cooked 'brekus', which was a boiled egg, a sausage patty with a piece of toast and oj, all set on a tray and taken lovingly to my mother who was fast asleep and had no idea what I was doing and was delicious! My husband made his birthday cake for his 5th birthday and his mother said it was very good and no one believed he baked and decorated it. Separately we both watched the Galloping Gourmet, Julia Child, and others like Chef Tell, Martin Yan and Jeff Smith. We were in the same program at jr college, just during different periods of times, and met during a holiday party we catered separate parts of.
