I am now retired and have a little extra time to experiment. 20 years ago my cookbook, "The Biggest Crock" was published and I'm in a constant flux to update it with many new and tried recipes. Never seem to get to a satisfactory completion, though.
My favorite things to cook
Favorites? Food! I'm willing to try and cook everything that isn't still moving. But preferences are pork, beef, prawns, stews, and shellfish.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My background is Hungarian, so much of my cooking is based on what I learned from my Mother and Grandmother. Most of the food is spicy, fattening, and delicious. I also spent time in 36 other countries that have added to the influence of my cuisines.
My cooking triumphs
There have been a few, but my greatest triumph is when I cook something new for family and friends and they ask me for the recipe.
My cooking tragedies
At age 18, my first time away from home at College, I tried to make a hard boiled egg. I put the water on, got a phone call, and it's hard to believe what the colour of burnt water is on the side of a pan.
