I have always loved to cook. I'm one who is not afraid of trying out new complex recipes....and being creative with my old, tried and true. concoctions. I work as a cook for a catering company..I've been catering for 9 years. Got married this year. Actually cooked for my own wedding...(had hired kitchen staff for heating and serving the meal).
My favorite things to cook
I love to make coq au vin, beef burgundy, eggplant parmesan, pad thai, hummingbird cake, and stir fries.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is of Italian heritage; so on holidays we have ricotta pie, many types of biscottis, stuffed artichokes, and bracciole.
My cooking triumphs
My cheesecakes, my enchiladas, but especially my tortellini pesto pasta salad, which is loaded with sundried tomatoes, pesto, red onions, extra virgin olive oil and pine nuts. Everyone loves it.
My cooking tragedies
When making a brown gravy....takes me a long time to get it right.
