My favorite things to cook
I especially like making salads adding 'surprise ingredients such as cheeses, fruits, nuts, marinated vegetables etc. Also baking with chocolate and using things like wasabi (yes I said wasabi), dried fruits and liquers.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas dinner is a culmination of old recipies passed down from my mother that I have used for over 25 years. You can't go wrong with classic food.
My cooking triumphs
That would be cooking for large groups (alone) and having everything come together on time and tasting terrific.
My cooking tragedies
Well no one has died yet from my cooking and aside from an experimental flop or two I really have no real tragedy to report.
