I moved away from Sydney to retire in Queensland almost thirteen years ago.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that is easy and tastes good, like a thick meat and vege casserole. Although I am experimenting with various recipes these days.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family consists of five nationalities, favourite food herring salad but don't like beetroot soup. Borsch our way made with cabbages, vegetables and liquid made with tomatoe paste. Or Cabbage fried with pork. Verenicki or the Polish call it Peirogi.
My cooking triumphs
I was told that I make really wonderful mushroom cream sauce, which goes well with spaghetti or over roast meat. But don't ask me for the recipe because its a bit of this and a bit of that. My secret ingredient is the splash of whisky before adding the cream. lol
My cooking tragedies
Many years ago, I made cheese fondue. It was so bad that my father buried it and nothing ever grew in that spot. One year, the particular area was dug up and low and behold this green blob expanded out of the ground like a balloon. That was my fondue. It went with the rubbish to the local tip.
