I love baking and slowly learning how to cook savoury things as well. I'm gathering some experience for the future, trying to cook more for myself, and my focus is on healthy food. I do Crossfit, so I like cooking high protein, clean food, as much as possible, to complement my training.
My favorite things to cook
Anything dessert-y really. Cakes are probably my favourite, though they take a lot of time. But I can really put my all into them. I love making anything with chocolate, as long as it's good cocoa/chocolate. I also like learning to make classic things I haven't made before.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma used to make absolutely amazing gefilte fish. No one's ever made anything even resembling that. It's cheesy but it was my favourite comfort food and no one will ever even come close.
My cooking triumphs
An 8-layer vegan hazelnut cake with vegan chocolate cream cheese filling and dark belgian chocolate ganache. It took be about 5 hours to make overall but I was so proud of it.
My cooking tragedies
Lemon meringue pie. I tried making it probably 2 or 3 times and I could never get the lemon curd to set properly. I am taking a break from trying until further notice. It was very disappointing. Custards are hard!!!
