Unperfect, noun - not Perfect but Positive

I want to talk about the name 'the Unperfect Chef' and what it means to me. If you google 'unperfect' you will discover that it is an old verb, rarely used, that means to destroy what is perfect. Which is kind of metal but not what I thought when I kind of came up with it for a name. I know that grammatically it should be imperfect but if you google that it's "not perfect; faulty or incomplete." That's literally copied and pasted from google. To me, that's not what this is about.

I wanted to celebrate everything, the good, the bad, and the ugly. Kind of like the Mad Hatter celebrating everyday. Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite books (I even have the illustration of the White Rabbit tattooed on my leg), and I remembered how the Mad Hatter celebrates everyone's unbirthday. That's everyday. Like why not celebrate everything? I love food, and I don't see fuck ups as a bad thing. Experimentation is what makes new things and cooler things and better things.

When I make food I'm very critical of it. I want the best out of me, but I've come to realize that even if I don't like it someone else might. Everyone has different preferences. I'll tell you what I made, what I like about it and what I don't, then let you decide for yourself. And if you fuck up at home, you join the party and share. Maybe I'll like your version better then mine!

p.s. the word 'unpefect' is so under used that it gets a red squiggly line underneath it when typed on a computer....
