I'm what some people characterize as a student for life - I keep going with my education to procrastinate choosing a career. My studies are unrelated to food, but I fill my spare time with reading tempting recipes and then trying them when I can. I often daydream about opening my own bakery one day.
My favorite things to cook
I'd definitely have to say cookies and cakes, or anything that calls for a substantial amount of chocolate. I also really enjoy cooking comfort foods like sweet breads, and spicy curries over rice with naan.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family owned a grocery store for several generations and became famous for meat pies and chicken pot pies. As a vegetarian, I've adapted our family chicken pot pie recipe for veggie pot pie, and I'm still carrying on the family sweets like jam-jam cookies!
