Food, business and the intersection of them. Add your strength and you have the perfect recipe.
While preparing our meals, we are often in a state of flux, just focusing on the rhythm of the knife that cuts the onion, the smell of those mint leaves, the consistency of the egg white we are whipping up, and then the pleasure of consuming our delicious food with someone we love and cherish.
Food nourishes us and those who eat with us, it helps concentrate on the task at hand while pondering on bigger issues and challenges in our lives. So that onion becomes the troubles you are trying to cut away, mint gives you a subtle energy to refresh your thoughts and move on with life and the souffle’ carries your hopes that a specific idea or project won’t deflate as soon as it’s out of the oven.
This is a personal space, where I reflect on my connection to food and the inspiration it gives me every day to think more and think harder about my business challenges: over time sourcing and preparing meals has become a sort of therapeutic approach to the everyday business challenges that would otherwise seem hard to overcome from the same level they were created.
This is where I share my thoughts and points of view about food, life and business and their constant interactions. My aim with The Mentor Kitchen is for everyone to find their strengths, learn how to use them at work and at home…all while cooking delicious food. You won’t find many recipes, even though I love cooking, as this is not purely a food blog.
