I am chef jeremy madden, i have been cooking since i was 16. i have been in every type of restaurant and worked every position. I love what i do, because i can see someone laugh smile and enjoy bliss all because the food i prepare made them that way. i started cooking because i loved the way my family is around it busting jokes laughing and smiling and forgetting about the struggles. It became my passion after i had a stroke when i was 17 1 month later my cooking final in home ec came. i took the final i made a three course meal in 1 hour egg drop soup orange chicken fried rice and sauteed veggies, and a sweet rice and mango. my teacher asked me if i ever thought about cooking for living... i thought no i wasnt good enough and my hand coordination is always off, she said i had a talent and to try it out. she got me an internship at the marriot in woodland hills... the rest is history i did cooking competitions challenges.. anything i can do i love to learn.well thats me in nut shell... well a huge nut shell i love cooking i love people i love telling jokes and i love seeing someone surpass there own limitations. my quote is for those who reach there are no limits
