About this Cook
Adventure is my name and cooking is my game! By the time people reach my age we have cooked every-day-food ad nauseam! My Grandmother was a good farm house cook, her pies were award winners, my Mother is a good cook, and I surpass both as I enjoy the challenge of the “different”. My repertories is only limited to my ability to obtain ingredients in my land-locked-back-water-state. My Motto: New is not necessarily better, Fast and Easy rarely surpass Slow and Difficult in taste and quality. I’d rather take a whole day and prepare several meals the Slow and Difficult way freeze and use during the following week than eat what is unappealing. We who are Super Tasters rarely enjoy eating fast food. What’s a Super Taster? Those people that have more taste buds on their tongue than others - ergo can discern flavor better [or worse depending on how you look at it], all professional tasters are Super Tasters. There is a test you can perform to find out if you are a Super Taster too. Ju
My favorite things to cook
Foreign Foods, foreign to me. Antique Recipes, to modernize without compromising taste. Difficult and complicated recipes in an attempt to streamline using new tools and techniques. Christmas Dinner from countries around the world. One of my Grandchildren picks a country out of a hat and I investigate how that country celebrates the holiday and I cook their Christmas dinner. It’s stretches my talent and I use it as a teaching tool for my Grandchildren so that they can appreciate the differences as well as the similarities between people around the world. Last year we ate on homemade bread trenchers with just a knife and spoon. I did a medieval Christmas with roast venison, spitted pork roast, baked wild duck breasts, roasted root vegetables, mead [from a Colorado Meadery] and Christmas pudding. I made “long cloths” for the tables to use as both table cloth and napkin. I made head circlets for each guest with feathers for men and veils for women. I made Nefs for the salt cella

Farro Salad with Asparagus and Parmesan
Great! I served this at my card club last week and it was the hit of the night! I made it with barley instead of farro and added tangerine sections for color. Everyone wanted the recipe!

Quick Butter Croissants
Quick? Yes these are quick compared to a true croissant which is butter/fold/roll butter/fold/roll over and over adnausium. I have been delighting guests with these for fourty years. There aren't many "quick" recipes that turn out as well as this one!
