Being an architecture student juggling 7 courses and a billion projects, I somehow manage to find time to cook. It releases all stress and worry as I chop, dice, and sautee.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook full favoured, spicy dishes. Pad Thai, black bean chicken, Korean BBQ ribs, curries, you name it. I would say that the thing I make the most is pizza with lots of garlic, feta, spinach and olives. In fact, one's in the oven RIGHT now.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is an amazing cook, so I have learned a lot of traditional Korean dishes from her. She makes everything from scratch. Chili pastes, miso, even soy sauce using authentic ingredients and innovative methods.
My cooking triumphs
I could never make a good pie crust that was flavourful and flaky, but I have proudly mastered the trick!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I attempted at making caramel, I burnt it, so made it again, and it was under done. By the third try,(as they say, third time's a charm) after watching it like a hawk, I got it perfect! Oh...for the life of me... I can't do microwave popcorn...burns...ALL the time...or doesn't really pop the whole way because i pull it out too early for fear of burning it!
