Anyway, apparently it is a widely held belief that if you visit me, you are agreeing to become my sous chef, my chopper, mixer, right-hand man (or woman).
Personally, I have no problem with this. I like to cook. I like to experiment and there ain't no better time to experiment than when you gots a couple extra hands and a willing soul.
Plus, everyone gets a good (debatable) meal out of the deal.
As far as reputations go, it could be worse.
