"I acquired a passion for cooking at a very young age. I started watching cooking shows when I was 8 years old because I loved learning about other countries and I wanted to travel all over the world. I knew every country flag by the time I was 6. After watching chefs prepare hours worth of recipes from around the globe, I started to experiment with different cuisines in the kitchen.
No recipe was too hard, I wanted to try them all. The more complicated the better. My determination to perfect every recipe led to hours in the kitchen. Through both failures and success, I developed a love and passion for cooking and trying new recipes." - Evan Estrada
