To be in food, you have to have an ego. It’s the dirty truth. You have to think highly (and low at the same time) of yourself, to push through the tired, dirty, hot mess of it all. You have to think you are good enough to bake it, cook it, take a picture of it, serve it, or you will not cook/bake like you really want. A person who loves it and likes it can make the same recipe, and it won’t come out the same way. You do bake with emotion, cook with love. And a meal/dessert/whatever can truly be expressed without words if made right. I love when people love my baking, I love the compliments, the happiness it invokes in people. I love the followers on instagram who like my pictures, think my food looks good enough to eat. It drives you to do more, be more. So to pretend to be humble all the time, you aren’t fooling a fellow baker/cook/chef-we get it 🙂
This is New York style cheesecake. And it really is that good.
