International teacher for most of my life. I live in Moscow.
My favorite things to cook
Anything savory but lately breads and desserts have been successful cooking adventures.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Anything that includes all the cooks in my family contributing.
My cooking triumphs
A ratatouille parmesan in which I used a blended eggplant, zucchini, fire roasted tomato, garlic and red pepper soup as the sauce - I was amazed at the taste and the texture as I am definitely NOT a vegetarian.
My cooking tragedies
Several burned recipes when I lost focus.
