Cooking For Engineers

Cooking For Engineers was started in June 2004 by Michael Chu as a place for Michael to store and share the recipes that he likes to use as well as some kitchen notes.

"Basically, I started the site as a place to store all the food related stuff that I didn't want to have to carry around in my brain, but I would want to reference later. Sometimes people ask me (or quiz me) about cooking and there's a tendency for me to smile and respond with, 'I wrote it down so I wouldn't have to remember!'" - Michael Chu

how2heroes is a how-to online video destination that celebrates people’s passion for food – the flavors, the presentation, the secrets to success, the cultural inspirations, and of course the “heroes” who share their knowledge and experience. We believe that learning about the hero behind the how-tos is almost as important as the how-to itself. how2heroes provides a comfortable, welcome home for food enthusiasts looking for inspirations from professionals and amateurs alike or for those who have their own great ideas to share. If you're looking for the who, why and where in addition to the how-to, you've come to the right place. We provide the full story of who created the how-to and what's their story, how they developed the area of expertise they're sharing or where they got their inspiration. The whole package is what brings credibility and excitement to these videos. We hope you enjoy them as much as we've enjoyed creating them for you. And we hope that you decide to share your own videos as well.
