Why ‘thehiddencook’?

The name just came to me.  I was preparing lunch and I just picked up my camera and starting filming and explaining what I was doing.  I thought about the process and the fact that I wasn’t actually ‘talking in front of the camera’ but rather talking from behind, I was hidden and I liked it.  When I thought about the deeper meaning, the fact that I am not a professional chef/cook, but just someone who likes to cook, it occurred to me that everyone must have an hidden cook within themselves, just waiting to come out.  The name just stuck and it feels right.  Oh and also, I blog in secret;  nobody except for my husband is aware that I blog.  I take photos and tell everyone of my family and friends that the photos are for someone else (an overseas friend/relative) and they never really question it.  I feel somewhat bad about it, but I also get a rush from knowing that nobody really knows that I spend my time doing this!
