Contrary to what my user name may imply, I'm not a professional chef. I'm a freelance writer/editor now getting ready to start a second career as an elementary-school teacher. However, I have worked (albeit briefly) as a caterer, I've written a cookbook, and I'm one hell of a talented amateur foodie. Moreover, I feel that I have that indefinable quality of chefliness that qualifies me to call myself one.
In addition to my webcomic, Scandal Sheet!, you might also want to check out JazzRant, a site featuring some of my writing.
I come across as very confident but underneath I have a pathological need to be thought entertaining; everyone has to think I'm a neat person, so if you don't, keep it to yourself, ok? *wink*
