This is what I think was my first introduction to getting some goals during the winter months ahead reprinted in an article in Chatelaine Magazine in October's issue. I really got very very " stoked" up by this information because my fiance is an excellent chef and this article was an inspiration to purchasing a few items for us to use and this book will, by the information given in the article in Chatelaine, will be very helpful to me here! Thank-you very much!
