I cook for pleasure and happiness, and on those grounds only. But just for my pleasure? Of course not, I always love cooking for other people and learning from their opinions and advice. I dont exactly consider a professional future in cooking, however cooking is something you cannot take away from me. Well, this was more about my cooking life rather than about me, but isn't cooking more interesting anyways?
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook a variety of foods, however I usually tend to stick with dessert. I have a sweettooth, and a delicious dessert always puts a smile on my face! :) Also, considering the precious amount of time I have, I like making things that don't take too much time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is completely russian, so we tend to stick to russian recipes. Since I lived in Russia for quite a while when I was young, I learned a few of the traditions of russian food. When my mother was a girl in Russia, she and her friends usually went to each other on different ways to experiment on the same food, because in Russia back then a variety of food was scarce, creating many recipes with the same ingredients.
My cooking tragedies
Not many, but when I usually have high expectations to a dish that promises to be very good, and turns out.. bland. That seems like a tragedy to me :)
