About this Cook
I'm Chris, and I love to cook. I am currently enrolled in a local community college's culinary program, and I hope to get into the apprenticeship.
My favorite things to cook
Classic French Cuisine, Traditional Chinese Dishes, all types of desserts and baked goods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making cornbread, deep-frying catfish and hush puppies, cooking good suppers and breakfasts for my family.
My cooking triumphs
A very nice tomato sauce that I recently made. I completely eyeballed it, tasting as I went along, and it went great with the meatballs I learned how to make in one of my Meat Prep labs.
My cooking tragedies
A recipe for a california orchard cake. I used normal Dream Whip topping, thinking that's what it meant by Dream Whip. I was actually supposed to use the dried product, and the cake never set and had to be thrown away.

I haven't tried this yet, but I just wanted to say, the first time I saw this recipe and the photo with it, I was instantly reminded of the song "Miss Fogarty's Christmas Cake"
