About this Cook
I'm an amateur cook who enjoys trying new recepies. I come from a long line of family cooks, non of whom have ever been professional. I have lived abroad, specially in Japan, Mexico, El Salvador, Nicaragua and in the US in several southern states. Soy Guatemalteco y mi idioma materno es el español, pero me siento igual de comodo hablando ingles, frances y portugues. Soy un profesional de la Teconología de la Información y trabajo voluntariamente con organizaciones juveniles, en donde me gusta enseñar a cocinar al aire libre. Mi gusto es particular hacia los platos exóticos. Pruebo todo al menos una vez y tengo muy buena memoria para los sabores y los olores. Mi paladar se hace mas selectivo cada día, pues estoy involucrado en un club local de aficionados al vino y disfruto del vino desde hace muchos años. Me gustan mucho las comidas al aire libre, la parrillada, las ensaladas y los mariscos.
My favorite things to cook
Main courses, salads, fish, bbq´s. Asian, fusion, sauces.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Family gathering for outdoor cooking. Fiambre during All Saints Day (Nov 1)
My cooking triumphs
Not any public, coordination of family dinner plannig for the holidays.

Recipe Reviews 1 review
Gourmet Mushroom Risotto
Just prepared it yesterday and it is awesome. I used onions and garlic as a substitute for shallots. For an "earthier" taste, I replaced the portobellos and white mushrooms with fresh shiitake and buna-shimeji mushrooms.
