Frequent Queries and Confusions
Who is Fred?
We’re both Fred. We’re a young couple with a silly streak and we call each other Fred as a term of endearment.
But who are you really?
One of us is a professional rabble rouser whose job sometimes includes climbing into dumpsters and marching on evil bosses, while the other tries to keep a straight face when sitting in meetings with his corporate peers. Our real passions, however, lie in the domestic sphere – tending to our garden, cooking each other dinner, making cheese, and striving for the perfect cup of coffee. These are the pursuits we will document and explore on this blog.
How did you learn to cook?
Long Answer: When Fred and I met a few years ago, all I could make was split pea soup and all he could make was guacamole and lobster. We were broke, blooming foodies and the time to learn to cook was upon us. At first our cooking mainly yielded amusing stories, but over time we gained confidence in the kitchen and we’re proud to say that the vast majority of the food we now consume is homemade.
Short Answer: We started cooking and didn’t give up when we sucked at it for a long time.
