About this Cook
I am a flight attendant and love to take as many cooking classes in as many different areas as possible. I like to experiment with all ingredients and no recipe sounds strange to me ... I will try anything!
My favorite things to cook
Indonesian/Asian are my favorites because I find the flavor of the spices so interesting.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up with the traditional Polish/Italian foods but when I moved to California my interest in other cultures broadened my cooking practices.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to make homemade tamales, mole chicken and finding a recipe for Laksa (Indonesian soup which I absolutely crave). Also entertaining for gatherings including vegans and non vegetarians at the same time.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to mention but some were recipe related!
