My name is Mack Prioleau, and I love food!

It’s no coincidence, in my opinion, that there are so many different delicious kinds of food, and so many different ways to make food delicious. I think eating was meant to be one more way to enjoy life, and to get the most out of everyday.

I have always loved food, but before I retired I didn’t get to enjoy it as much as I do now. Now, I have the time to travel around to find the best restaurants, meander around local street food fairs, and, of course, cook! I finally have the time to try new recipes (and invent some of my own), perfect my favorite dishes, and attend food festivals across the country!

But perhaps the best part of my retirement is that it gives me a chance to share my love of food and cooking with my grandkids. They love coming over to spend time with me, because they know it will inevitably lead to a fun afternoon in the kitchen, with the end result being many tasty treats.

Over the years I’ve learned a lot about cooking – not by attending any fancy school, but simply by doing it a lot. In the spirit of my love of cooking, I’ve decided I would like to pass on the knowledge I’ve accumulated through the years, so that others who love cooking and food as much as I do can benefit from what I’ve spent a lifetime learning.

Food, like life, should be celebrated! No matter what your favorite food is, take the time to enjoy it today!
