I've been cooking for my family since I was 16 years old, starting with a particular interest in Chinese cuisine, later expanding to Thai. About four years ago, I picked up Wayne Gisslen's Professional Cooking and have been developing my skills in classic French techniques. I love working with local, seasonal ingredients and making them sing!
My favorite things to cook
Soups, stews, braised meats, curing meat (bacon, corned beef, etc.), vegetables.
