We're a couple who love food, wine and all the pleasures of life. Our "everyday" cooking is fresh, fast and simple - relying on great ingredients, on days off, we tend to more involved and love to take the time to create that "food of love" thing. Cooking and baking are a passion, Serena will read cookbooks and recipes the way most people would read a novel.
Food - good food - is a joy, a treat and an art form; something to be cherished, indulged in and most of all, shared.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort foods, fun & different fresh foods, decadently rich, horribly sinful deserts - especially those that involve chocolate.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Serena grew up cooking, it's so in her DNA that "tradition" doesn't even come into play. Spencer came to the kitchen later in life. Together, we live, learn and love, discovering new "traditions" along the way.
My cooking triumphs
Creating our own recipe for tiramisu that was the perfect mix of light and rich.
Or those simple dishes where the flavors are so perfect, so fresh, that every bite is heaven.
My cooking tragedies
Aside from the occasional accident (burned meringues, or burned/sliced fingers) neither of us thinks in terms of tragedies or even failures. It's all part of the process, sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't.
