Running a food blog at ChocolatePrawns.com. Father of an almost-2-year-old. I take cake decorating and cooking classes.
My favorite things to cook
I like any recipe that requires weeks of planning and a trip to my favorite cooking store for new hardware. I really like fussy, time-consuming recipes. I dream of one day making Heston Blumenthal's Black Forest Cake (requires a vacuum chamber).
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad used to make the most delicious leg of lamb on the rotisserie. I haven't been able to duplicate it yet.
My cooking triumphs
My wife and I made ground lamb pitas once that were just 100% perfectly seasoned and sauced. We didn't write down the recipe and haven't been able to duplicate it since.
My cooking tragedies
Gnocchi eludes me.
