I posted a blog a few weeks ago about a book I'd read called The Third Plate by chef Dan Barber. Barbers book began as an effort to find out why our food simply doesn't taste better. In the end he unveils why and in so doing, exposes the horribly rotten underbelly of what Big Agra has done to… MORE

About this Cook
Let's see, in keeping it to a subject, at age 22 I had a filet doused in Bernaise sauce aboard a train. That was it, I was hooked on fine food. Living in a small town necessitates learning to cook well to maintain that stellar menu.
My favorite things to cook
Oh man, only a thousand characters? My favorite things to cook are items that make YOU happy. I'll try anything and thus far it would be far easier to list those things I don't like than those I do. So far, I hate Cilantro and I'm allergic to green chiles. It's a short list.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas. I like everything about that meal and every single year I aim to improve.
My cooking triumphs
Every smile, every gasp of delight, every accolade, such sweet victory!
My cooking tragedies
A Cioppino recipe I found here. I served it as part of one of those Christmas dinners and the cod was a poor choice. It was terrible, ghastly fishy taste. I've since learned a thing or two about freshness in fish. Prior to that, hmm perhaps when I was 10, I made a spice cake that called for whole cloves....hey, that's what it said on the outside of the bottle, whole cloves....

Terrific Turkey Chili
Like most everyone, I modified this somewhat. I ixnayed the green chilis and chili pepper flakes. Subbed in its place a hot and spicy taco seasoning with chipotle and a tablespoon of Ancho chili powder.I added two cans of beans, one of black, one of kidney and added an additional of can of chopped tomatoes. The result is most decidedly delicious and I'll make this again. I should add, I also did not use the cheddar or sour cream. I've no doubt those would be awesome on this but why bother going to the expense of ground turkey if you're just going to deep 6 the health benefits? A good if somewhat odd base recipe but delightful nonetheless.

Black Pepper Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry
A little pedestrian as is. I remedied that with some Hoi Sin sauce.

Basic Ham and Bean Soup
I gave this a 3 because I feel like I simply must have done something wrong. I used hamhocks, lots of tender loving care went into this and what I got was bland enough that I tossed the lot. Otherwise I'd have clocked this a 1 star. I really tried to get this rocking but it was just not to be. In retrospect, I think this needed some more veggies and some sugar, just a little. I'll look a little further afield.
