About this Cook
Started cooking in university, where three of my room mates sold desserts semi-professionally, learned lots about socially concious cooking. After 10 years as a consultant, eating at restaurants on expense account, became a stay at home dad, then grad student, I've learned to cook well - I don't miss those restaurants at all anymore.
My favorite things to cook
Chili.. I make my own chili powder from scratch, roasting the chilis, cumin, coriander and some secret ingredients :) Thai green curry, when the basil and coriander are fresh from the garden. Omlettes, such a versatile food.
My cooking triumphs
Making a mole sauce from scratch, roasting nuts, spices, chili's and cocoa, then convincing a group of Canadians that "Chocolate chicken" was better than it sounded!
My cooking tragedies
Spending a couple of hours and big $$$ to make a "traditional" cod chowder, only to find it inedible - who puts a pound of bacon and a block of butter and cream in a single pot!?!

Spicy Beef Brisket
We all loved this recipe, including my two picky kids. The meat was tender and lightly flavoured, the gravy was superb. I just wish I had made more 'cause there wasn't any left over for lunch. I added a diced onion to the stock, and used whole instead of ground allspice, but otherwise followed the recipe.
