This is how you're going to reach out and get a hold of me unless you already know me, in which case... why are you here, just pick up the phone.

Just a little corner of the interwebz where I occasionally jot down a thought or two. Why do I do it? Partly to communicate in some way with you, the reader, and partly because it's some sad way of leaving a legacy of some kind I guess.


far too young

Jonathan Tom

A man I don't know and have never met died in July; he was a Canadian, he was a chef, he was an incredible person. His name was Anthony Sedlak and he was 29 years old at the time of his death which is attributed to a previously undiagnosed medical condition. There are quite a few articles on the man that you can find with a quick google search or you can click here to see the Wikipedia article on him. Now as I said, I don't know him nor had I ever met him but I remember watching him on television and being influenced to try some of the recipes he presented. He was cool and he was an attractive guy; based on one of the articles I read that was a major reason that young women watched his show.

For whatever reason you watched him, he was a great cook and he died far too young.
