My favorite family cooking traditions
MY GRANDMOTHERS HOLIDAY COOKING. I ALWAYS STRIVE TO MIMIC HER ANTIPASTO, RIB ROAST,AND SCRAMBLED EGGS. VERY HOT OIL WAS HER SECRET WEAPON FOR VERY TASTY EGGS. I LIKE TO MAKE SEAFOOD SAUCE BASE SAUTE USING LOBSTER,SHRIMP,CRAB, SHELLS SAUTE IN CLARIFIED BUTTER FOR A BIT, DEGLAZE WITH A MATEUS WINE OR CONGAC, FINISH WITH HEAVY CREAM, STRAIN THRU CHEESE CLOTH AND VOILA!!!!

My cooking triumphs
MY COOKING TRIUMPHS ARE MODEST. AS LONG AS I CAN LEARN NEW WAYS, MAKE NEW FRIENDS IN THE FOOD WORLD, ALWAYS USE THE BEST FOOD PRODUCTS, BE HAPPY WITH WHAT I AM DOING, THEN IT WILL ALWAYS BE A TRIUMPHANT EXPERIENCE. CIAO.
My cooking tragedies
MAKING MY FIRST CAJUN ROUX. BOY WAS THAT A HUMBLING TIME! MAKING A DEMI GLAZE FROM SCRATCH WAS A CHALLENGING TIME. BOTH TAUGHT ME TO BE MINDFUL OF WHAT AND WHY I WAS DOING IT. GET CARELESS AND YOUR DISH FLIPS YOU OFF.
