In the world of cooking, every chef has a story, and for Ross, also known as @thisguycooks on Instagram, his journey began with a humble plate of scrambled eggs. Now, he shares his story of culinary discovery and passion, featuring de Buyer cookware, which has become an integral part of his kitchen adventures.

From Scrambled Eggs to Culinary Mastery

Ross's culinary journey is one of transformation and dedication. Until after college, he admits, "the only thing I knew how to cook was scrambled eggs." Cooking seemed like an elusive art, a kind of magic happening in kitchens that he felt he would never master. However, the pandemic lockdown of 2020 became a pivotal moment in his life. For 14 months, he cooked every single meal he ate — no delivery, no takeout. It was during this time that he pushed himself to explore different regional cuisines, experimenting with various ingredients and techniques.

Ross's dedication to self-reliance blossomed into a passionate quest for culinary excellence. He strived to become the best cook he could be, driven by the dream of one day teaching his future children everything he had learned. This period of intense practice and exploration set the stage for a significant turning point in his culinary journey.

A Serendipitous Encounter in Paris

When lockdown lifted, Ross found himself on a consulting job in France, the culinary capital of the world. A friend's recommendation led him to a cookware store in Paris, and from the moment he walked from his hotel to the store, he was captivated. The store's windows showcased beautiful copper pots and pans, the kind you would expect to see in the finest restaurants.

These stunning pieces turned out to be de Buyer cookware. Known for their exquisite craftsmanship and performance, de Buyer products are cherished by professional chefs and cooking enthusiasts alike. Ross was immediately drawn to their elegance and quality, realizing that this was the kind of cookware that could elevate his culinary creations to new heights.

The cookware's superior heat conductivity and durability have enabled him to execute even the most complex dishes with precision and ease.
