I am a college anthropology professor. Among other things, I teach Food and Culture. I am also researching mothers decision about feeding their children so if you are a mother of a young child, I want to talk to you! I am trying to dust off old cooking skills to make tasty, healthy dishes that my son will enjoy.
My favorite things to cook
I like to recreate dishes I have tried while traveling. I mostly cook vegetarian dishes with different grain and bean combinations but my husband is a meat and potatoes man so I have been incorporating more meat and trying to experiment with lots of dishes to see what he will like best.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother makes nut and seed tacos (inspired from Diet for a Small Planet) for birthdays and other special occasions. My favorite food, but I have yet to try making them myself.
My cooking triumphs
It has been years since I have cooked regularly so these days every tasty meal is a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
I am horrible about burning things. When I first moved to Hungary, before I could speak the language my roommate and I bought vinegar instead of oil and didn't realize it until we had added it and all the vegetables to the pan. Burned everything but luckily didn't burn down the kitchen.
