31 years old, currently living in Southern England, although I have also lived in New Zealand (7 years) and the USA (1 year). My stepmother is Swiss and my mother is American (and also Jewish) so there is quite a lot of different cooking influences in my past.
My favorite things to cook
Mostly Italian - there is no life without pasta! I also do fairly traditional English cooking - Sunday roasts etc. I also love cooking Indian food (especially Madhur Jaffrey recipies) but it's so time consuming I do it very rarely. I'm terrible at baking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Swiss Christmas biscuits - big tradition that I join in with when I'm with my Stepmother. The recipies are highly guarded family secrets, though, so they won't be appearing on here!
My cooking triumphs
Well, my flatmate is Italian (from Milan) and she loves both my bolognese sauce and my lasagne (which everyone seems to like), so that's quite a triumph, I suppose!
My cooking tragedies
Almost anything do to with baking. . .
