Well, what can I say. I’m Arne-Willem, 39 years old, married to Chantal and we have 2 boys, Micah and Danne. We live in Amstelveen, the Netherlands. During the day I keep myself busy working as an independent contractor. Usually in the capacity of interim tax manager or project manager in big restructurings.
But enough with the boring stuff… I spent my summers during high school and university in various restaurant kitchens. Although not formally trained, I do know my way around the kitchen, so you can peg me as enthusiastic home cook.
In my spare time, I read a lot about cooking, am trying out recipes and experimenting with new techniques, products and gadgets. I will try to regularly post the results of my culinary adventures here (and keep the topic of taxes to the bare minimum)…
Don’t expect too many “own” creations as I first cook according to the recipe and then assess how I would/could/should tweak it or how I can use the techniques in other recipes. As Chantal is a vegetarian, you will see a nice mix of recipes appear here on this blog too.
