I work as a hospital chaplain and believe that much of my work is about food for the soul and hospitality. I believe the same about cooking. I have travelled a fair bit and enjoy fusion cooking. I usually can't leave a recipe the way it is.
My favorite things to cook
Almost anything as long as it's fresh. But then again, mastering the art of casseroles based on boxes and cans can be quite enjoyable. Lately, I have been working on simple camping food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I learned to make bread from my father. I learned filipino food from my mother.
My cooking triumphs
Making an eight course meal for twenty and succeeding in serving hot dishes hot and cold dishes cold.
My cooking tragedies
pistachio ice cream that never firmed up. It was gross.
