My favorite things to cook
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!
