Worked as a sois chef long before Gordon Ramsey made cooking "cool." I have traveled the world and had some of the best cuisine! I lived in The Phillipines, Argentina, and Thailand as a child.
My favorite things to cook
Satay (Thai meat skewer), Fried Chicken, and any BBQ or Southern Comfort Foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am Thai-American; however, my mom always pointed out growing up that I am more on the "American" side.
My cooking triumphs
I successfully ran a small stand at the local farmer's market for about 6 months. We specialized in deep fried turkey and have cooked hundreds since then!
My cooking tragedies
I am not a baker; the flaming candied yams--Thanksgiving 2002.
