My favorite things to cook
Smothing new for My sweety. Things She thought She didn't like untill presented in a different way. Also make wine and find ways to introduce some of it in my meals
My cooking triumphs
A native American freind asked me to help with a memorial service meal for two relitives of Hers( 1 a Chief, the other a senior elder) when I arrived a the long house I found out "help" meant to take control of all prep and cooking for a gathering of ( expected 500 guests)I was to have three helpers. Some of the food was pre cooked and only needed reheating, 300 lbs of salmon two large coolers of crab, and the kitchen was of comercial quality. Other than meal starting a little late every thing went great. It was a good feeling to have taken on a challenge this large and pull it off.
P.S. The feelings I had in the long House before the guests arrived and all was quiet were of many freindly "spitits" being there to thank Me for my efforts.
My cooking tragedies
A meatloaf made after sampling too much wine. It tasted like oatmeal with a little meat dragged through it.
