I'm a 19 year old aspiring chef from toronto. I have wanted to become a chef for as long as I can remember and I am finally fulfilling that dream because my parents have given in to letting me go to cooking school this year :) I love to cook and bake and in the kitchen making food for people that I love (and sometimes people that i dont :P ) is where im the happiest. i am constantly looking for new recipes and ideas to try out and am hoping that joining this site will help me out with that, and maybe even talk to people and share ideas and stuff like that, will be cool. :D
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking everything really, I always try new things, but my favorite cuisine to cook I would have to say is Italian. I also love making desserts, any kind of desserts really.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Since I come from a mixed background, being half chinese and half arabic, growing up I've been exposed to many different types of food. On the chinese side every year there is the tradition of cooking chinese new year dinner which i am still learning. And on my arabic side my aunt always makes traditional arabic food for all occasions which i am also constantly trying to learn, things like tabouli, or arabic easter cookies.
My cooking triumphs
I've had quite a few, my latest would probably be my fabulous coffee cake which i posted :)
My cooking tragedies
There are def way too many to name, one that comes to mind right now would be the first time i made cheesecake..probably best i dont elaborate on that one anymore lol
