I attend the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor and well...I LOVE to cook. When I'm in the kitchen, I'm in the "zone." I love making food, sharing food, EATING food, and trying different dishes. Even though I'm a college student, I haven't allowed dorm food to muddle my pallet and since my mum is one of the best cooks ever I have pretty high standards for what "good food" is. I have a sweet tooth and am constantly trying to recreate what I've had in restaurants and bakeries. I think Melbourne, Australia is probably the best city in the world to find great food in EVERY corner!
I just got a citron colored KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer and I adore it!!!
My favorite things to cook
Desserts: cakes, muffins, custards, anything chocolatey
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is Singhalese...so anything my mum cooks is delicious! One of my favorites are crepes with a carmelized coconut filling...yum!
My cooking triumphs
Recently I made really great salmon and a lot of people like my buttermilk-battered calamari. All my baking triumphs can be attributed to this awesome website! :)
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make empanadas from scratch once and the pastry came out as hard as rock...I've been afraid of making empanadas ever since!
