About this Cook
I'm a mother, 4 kids, one crazy dog. I'm a semi-retired culinary professional (maybe-semi-depends on perspective), I paint (oil on canvas), have a deep and abiding love for food of all types, road trips (because the best food is where the locals eat) music concerts, red wine, and good conversation.
My favorite things to cook
to cook or to eat? my favorites to cook are anything, although my culinary speciality is as a sauce maker. I love making jams and jellies and incorporating spirits and fresh herbs into them--and I love making risotto--I blast my itunes and have a glass or two of wine while making a family favorite (my kids have been eating risotto since they had their first teeth)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mediterranean--it's what I grew up eating and I love all mediterranean foods (east, west, north, south) and have cooked them all
My cooking triumphs
That my older sons can cook and do it well--and that all my kids share their mother's life-long love affair with food
My cooking tragedies
I don't have pretty hands and and lower arms (but they sure are strong)
