Hi! I am Courtney, a twenty-something Canadian living in beautiful Victoria, BC. I spend my days as a digital marketer tweeting & blogging for a local restaurant. While my job is fulfilling it leaves me hungry for more – literally. I started Yes Dear / Chef as a way to practice my three passions – cooking, photography & web design.
Why call it Yes Dear / Chef ? Because that’s my life. I live with my boyfriend/chef and am constantly balancing the two (anyone who has ever dated a chef knows exactly what I mean). Think life with a chef is full of elaborate, gourmet meals? Guess again – in reality chefs work 80+ hours/week and on the rare day off they are less than keen to jump back in the kitchen. So what’s a girl to do?
I have made it my personal goal to learn the tricks of the trade to keep me & my chef fed. What makes me an expert? Absolutely nothing, which is the best part. I am just a regular burn-half-of-what-I-make kind of cook. Luckily my chef is constantly giving tips to improve recipes (even when I don’t ask for them) that I’ll be sharing with you.
Have any feedback or questions? Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
