My favorite things to cook
Anything Asian! (Thai, Korean, Chinese, Indian, etc). But I like Italian, Mexican, Turkish, Moroccan, as well. I tend to enjoy savoury dishes over sweet ones.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well I know that my family tradition is that we don't use recipes. We whip things together like artists, but this has created now a gap in my life in NOT having learned to cook from recipes, so now I like to try out new recipes, to expand my cooking repertoire.
My cooking triumphs
I don't even know how to answer this, other than to say that it's certain a victory when people love your food and invite themselves over again to enjoy your food. That would be a triumph! And it's usually something Asian...
My cooking tragedies
Right now I'm without a full oven, in my little apartment. That's a tragedy!
