About this Cook
My love of cooking has returned now that Ive renovated my kitchen which now includes a two oven,six burner Viking pro range.both ovens are convection with one side being able to hold proofing temp for bread starters etc. s So all in all anything is possible or at least provides more consistent results than the electric stove I had been using.
My favorite things to cook
Soups,sauces,stocks, stews,All Italian,Roast Beef,Chicken,Casseroles Baking,Preserving jams,,relishes,Salads,Vinaigrettes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Maury Rubins lemon tarts, molten chocolate cake, Minestrone, anything Marcella Hazan etc. etc.
My cooking triumphs
Most of what I try comes out pretty well, but like all other foodies we improve with repetition.
My cooking tragedies
Bought a butterball turkey last minute a couple of thanksgivings ago ( I know...yuk ) stuck it in a foil pan which had a small slit , you can imagine how long it took to stop the fire alarm
