I was a professional cook for 26 years. It's difficult to have everything in a home kitchen that is available in a restaurant kitchen. Especially the expensive spices! Now it's just for fun and a lot simpler stlye.
My favorite things to cook
Anything where I can use fresh herbs and spices.
My favorite family cooking traditions
pasta with tomato sauce. (I'm Italian)Holidays wouldn't be the same without a steaming bowl of pasta!
My cooking triumphs
Bread. Finally found an easy Artisan recipe that I can get to work for me.
My cooking tragedies
Not going there....
