I am a prep cook in a restaurant and love it. I do mostly hot prep items such as the stocks, soups, sauces, rice dishes, and fillings. I consider myself lucky to do what I love and get paid for it.
My favorite things to cook
I like to try new things but not a big fan of desserts. Bread is one of my favorite things to make, easy and very satisfying.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday Baking, Seafood Casserole for birthdays, and Beef Tenderloin Roast for New Year's Eve
My cooking triumphs
I entered a cooking contest and was chosen to appear on Good Morning America for a cook off (trip to Italy was the Grand Prize), I didn't win but had a great time in New York City on them! Also was in a contest at the Boston International Seafood Show, another great time but was runner up. I'll keep trying!
My cooking tragedies
I made a vegeterian lentil loaf and, well, it didn't go over well. Pulled that page out of the recipe book.
