I enjoy cooking in a free form way that reminds me of Be Bop. I start with a structured idea (recipe) read it thoroughly and then toss it aside. I might jot down some notes (perhaps key ingredients or ideas I have to make it better) then I go into the kitchen and start cooking. Otherwise I create recipes from ideas that pop into my head, which is typically the case. I'm forced to cook with feeling and instinct. My cooking reflects my passion for certain flavors and ingredients.
