I'm a Ph.D. in chemical engineering. About 5 years ago I realized that I have an inate cooking ability and find that I enjoy testing my limits on more and more difficult foods.
My favorite things to cook
Filets of Beef in Pasilla Chile Sauce. (Recipe for Robert La Grande)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy preparing a seafood feast for Christmas including King Crab and Mussels.
My cooking triumphs
I tried Salmon Tamales recently and they came out amazing! Cooking for 40 people off the grill for my engagement party a few years back.
My cooking tragedies
Veal Marsala cam out gooey and burnt. One of my rare blunders.
