I'm of mixed heritage-part Asian, part Portuguese and part English extraction. I love to cook but eating is even better. I'm a stay home mum to 3 boys, who are my tasters. My food obsessions are cookbooks, food photography, supermarkets, wine, Nigella Lawson and Nigel Slater. My food peeves are long and tedious recipes and people who criticise or reject anything before they try it *frown*
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook with and eat beef (rare as rare can be) avocados, cheese, pasta, potatoes, chili, wasabi and most vegetables. Can't live without my coffee (Antiguan, Sumatran and Kenyan are my favourites)chocolate and my weekly shot of tuna sashimi.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas dinner and Easter lunch. Making brownies and every imaginable variation thereof with my son Joseph is a very close second.
My cooking triumphs
Most things I make turn out alright thankfully ;)
My cooking tragedies
I just cannot for the life of me make a decent apple pie or banana cake *grrrrrrrrrr*
