Well, I do a little cooking at home. I also worked as a baker in a small town bakery during the summers in college, so I know my breads (and buns and cookies and doughnuts and...well anything involving dough) fairly well. Other than that, it's just tinkering in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook savory things. If it has meat in it with some sort of breading and gravy, then let me at it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always have cheese, crackers, and wine (sparkling cider for the underage people) on Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
I make a mean steak and ale pie (for an American)
My cooking tragedies
I once put salt (instead of the 3 cups of sugar) in a upside down molten chocolate cake...needless to say that wasn't the best cake I've ever made.
