I love to cook - plain and simple. I am far from a great cook, but I enjoy the whole process; from deciding the menu, to shopping in the markets for the ingredients, to preparing the meal, and last, but far from least, sitting down with family and friends and eating. I will never be a "chef", but I will always enjoy cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I love learning new receipes. I have been fortunate to live in many different countries and I try to get local receipes for whatever region I am in.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My wife and I get into the kitchen together and have always loved cooking together. When we were dating, rather than go out somewhere, we would get together and cook a great (most of the time) meal and then spend the evening together eating and talking. We still love bumping into each other in the kitchen.
