I love chocolate
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy baking cakes, not necessarily because I enjoy eating them, but mostly because I enjoy decorating them. Chocolate tempering is also really fun. I like decorating cakes and molding chocolates because there is a certain art to it, and with food, I can make textures that I can't with a pencil or a paintbrush (I enjoy art). I also have fun deep-frying stuff and converting it to oven baking time because everything tastes good deep-fried, but baking can reach almost the same effect and is a lot healthier.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma makes Chinese food. I don't like her Chinese food because it usually has too much or too little salt. I prefer to just eat rice with tofu soup (it's Korean, but who cares? It's all East-Asian).
My cooking triumphs
My chocolate mousse. I love the stuff because, see, although I love chocolate, I get annoyed when the chocolate just won't melt in my mouth, and I have to chew it to get it to melt and taste the velvety taste of melted chocolate. It's also too dense. Which is why when the mousse intercepts, with the perfect chocolaty taste, yet a fluffy, light, creamy, AND velvety texture, well, you get what I mean. But I had to go to the gym forever after I got hooked on it -.-
My cooking tragedies
Ah... I tried putting cocoa powder into a regular cake (or it may have been sponge), and adding coffee too. It was horrible... Tough and chewy, not to mention dense and tasteless, yet overly sweet. Thank god the mousse was good, and it looked pretty.
