Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

Rick Mercer - Cooking with Sheila

I learned a long time ago that developing a good sense of humour is imperative when it comes to cooking. Laughing at your mistakes while learning from them is a must! As a homestyle cook the humour helps to remind me not to take things so serious when cooking. Cooking should always be fun. With that said it is difficult to write humorous posts on a cooking blog so you really don't get to see this side of me. I seriously have a wicked sense of humour! Some of the stories I could tell that have honestly happen to me while cooking would have you busting your sides laughing but that is for another day.

Today I want to share a bit of Canadian culinary humour by Canada's favourite funny man, Rick Mercer. What makes this video even funnier is it was shot at the Stratford Chefs School in Strafford, Ontario. This prestigious culinary institute is also featured on Food Network Canada's Chef School. The school produces some of the top notch Canadian chefs specializing in Canadian cuisine. I hope you enjoy the chuckle.

Oh No... Video not available in my country due to copyright something or other nonsense... And I needed a chuckle on this very cold morning.

Oh dear :( Rick Mercer is amazingly funny so it is a good video. It's a shame you can't see it.
