There once lived an amazing talking tree named Alvin, who loved to talk about food. He would sit all day long and talk about recipes and restaurants and different sauces and cupcakes. It was really amazing because Alvin could not eat any food. Alvin got his food from the sun and the rain and the soil. But Alvin was a scientist and he new about nutrients and he had been alive for quite a long time over 200 years so he understood about heat and how heat is used to cook things, and he knew about fire too. In fact Alvin knew so much, he was very wise. But one of Alvin’s favorite hobbies was cooking, because he loved to learn. Alvin lived for many years and taught some of the best chefs in the world secrets from chefs who lived hundreds of years before.
