Humans of Mac – KC – Jacob
Meet Jacob, an enthusiastic cook, egg-flip extraordinaire, a resident of ours at Windemere, and this week’s Humans of Mac! He was preparing a dinner party for a few friends and invited our resident photographer, @tofutaon (IG) in on the action. Read on to hear some motivating advice and see some great pictures of him cooking. Be warned, you’ll be hungry afterwards! We appreciate the time Jacob, and thanks for your residency. Maybe we can organize a cooking class in the near future for other residents??
