I'm a professional cook, who has been working in kitchens all across Canada for more than 15 years. Currently Chef/Manager of a fantastic pub in Hess Village, Hamilton, ON.
My favorite things to cook
Love cooking anything on the grill, and not just the usual... yes, you can grill pasta! (Think canneloni)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Came up in an Eastern Euopean family, so I love the slow cooked, rich flavors of dishes like goulash and sauerbraten.
My cooking triumphs
Recent faves: grilled wild BC snapper with fresh Texas watermelon and basil salsa... grilled bone-in porkchops with pear-butter-and-whiskey BBQ sauce and served with rosemary-lime roasted butternut squash.
My cooking tragedies
Turkey... god, I hate turkey!!! And it seems to hate me too.
