I feel so lucky to be raised in a multiracial/multicultural household in a multiracial/multicultural country which I think was a huge factor in my being comfortable with all kinds of textures, flavours and styles of cooking. I've also been lucky enough to travel a little bit which has further expanded my horizons...hopefully not just w.r.t. food ;). I live in Montreal now, where the cuisine is as fantastic and varied as where I grew up. Luvvit. Course I have my limits. I detest beansprouts. Nasty little things.
My favorite things to cook
I love making chocolate chip cookies. I have a special super-secret recipe which I HAVE been known to share. Feel free to suck up now ;).
In tribute to my roots, I make a pretty good curry.
New things are especially fun. It's a mini win every time I try something new. I'm sure all cooks know what I mean.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Everyone helping or hanging out with the cooks. Even moral support counts!
My cooking triumphs
I have some health issues I'm dealing with and it requires me being....careful. So every time I manage to change a recipe (one of my own OR something new) into a healthier and just as delicious version of itself I do a little dance. Where no one can see me.
My cooking tragedies
I absolutely CAN'T make good French Toast. I don't even try anymore.
