I am a professional pastry chef at an organic restaurant in Minneapolis.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts. Natch. I also enjoy learning new vegetarian recipes as well as new fish or seafood techniques.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Swedish baking. It all goes well with a good cuppa egg coffee.
My cooking triumphs
Perfecting The Ultimate Tiramisu and Pulla bread. Also, having my Mother-In-Law appreciate my baking.
My cooking tragedies
There are too many to mention here, although, my husband would be happy to tell you all about my misadventures with shrimp and meat dishes. . . . ;)
