My favorite things to cook
chickpea and tomato stew, anything in the slow cooker, comfort food of any description
My cooking triumphs
goat cheese and sundried tomato stuffed phyllo pastries, 50's style pineapple and maraschino ham, feeding a group of 40 on 2 hours notice (with compliments)
My cooking tragedies
dropping a pistachio encrusted rack of lamb on the kitchen floor, then trying to rescue it and burning it. Reliably drying out the Turkey every holiday.
