Wow, what can I say on a site like this that wouldn't be completely obvious and redundant? You know, stuff like "I really enjoy cooking."
I am a bit of a control freak when it comes to cooking in that I like to either grow my own ingredients or start from scratch. For example, instead of buying ground meat, I grind it myself. I roast my own coffee (much better and a lot cheaper), etc.
I am also a professional photographer and I find that the way I shoot is also the way I cook.
My favorite things to cook
I am still experimenting with different cuisines but I have developed a fascination and obsession with minimalism in cooking.
My cooking triumphs
Roasting my own coffee. If you haven't started, why not??
My cooking tragedies
Heh heh heh... years ago (before I learned to properly cook pasta), I had some friends coming over for dinner; I decided to make spaghetti. I used a large pasta pot to cook it in and filled it with pasta. Didn't know that you can actually put *too much* pasta in a pot. The gooey, solidified mass was entertaining to my friends and I ended up ordering pizza.
