Jeff is a graphic designer, living and working in downtown Toronto. During the day he creates user interfaces, information-graphics, and illustrations for a software training company. Sometimes he applies those skills to this blog. Sometimes he does not. Occasionally he plays bass in a band, or performs solo at absurdly-themed concerts. When he gets home, he cooks overly-complex recipes for himself and his fiancee Anuja – mostly to unwind, and partially to impress his Facebook friends with blog posts of the results.
The blog itself was originally intended to be a paper cookbook for Jeff and Anuja’s kitchen, but the internet and its ability to connect and organize information was too much to resist. Now Jeff can share his recipes with everyone – no photocopier necessary. The name “No More Microwaves” is a short summation of Jeff’s attitude to food. He survived most of his 20’s on microwaved foods, Swiss Cheese crackers, and Pepsi. Until he came to Toronto, he wasn’t even interested in food, really. Then he found out that food and cooking is incredibly interesting, relaxing, enjoyable and satisfying. Now he won’t shut up about it.
