I am an Australian, married to a wonderful Turkish man as of December 2009, and currently living in Istanbul. I love to travel, and I spent time living in Japan,London and Italy before coming to Turkey. I love to eat, and my favorite cuisine is Japanese, (but I tell my husband it is Turkish). This year I have started working with 2 and 3 year olds in a day care centre/ kindergarten.
My favorite things to cook
At the moment I love playing with yeast. I have tried bagels, pita pockets, pizza crust, dinner rolls, foccacia and naan
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmothers christmas pudding. Unfortunately noone pinned the recipe down when we had the chance, but my sister has done a fine job of taking over the pudding responsibility.
My cooking triumphs
When my husband said my loaf of bread was better than his mothers bread :)
