A few months ago I was watching a You Tube video of Gordon Ramsay being interviewed by Jimmy Kimmel in the US. Kimmel started the interview with this… “What’s the first thing you teach your chef’s?” “We teach them how to taste”.
The Dip
If you turn a dip on its side it looks like an arrow head. One simple shift and you can turn everything around. Of course, that’s easier said than done because when things aren’t going the way you planned, everything seems to
