I was born and grew up in Switzerland and live now in Canada.
My favorite things to cook
Mushroom Risotto, Home made pasta, Chicken in wine, Beef Stews. Polenta.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Spaghetti with Tomato sauce. Beef tongue with lentils. Sauerkraut with Bacon and smoked pork chops. Ham in bread dough with potato salad. Swiss style pies/pizzas.
My cooking triumphs
When I started cooking, I tried a recipe for Chicken in Wine. I was surprised that nothing went wrong and even my wife enjoyed it.
My cooking tragedies
None until now as I use foolproofed recipes.
