About this Cook
I originally come from Sydney, but have been living in the SW of France - the Pyrenees - for about 40 years. I spend 4 months of winter in Thailand.
My favorite things to cook
Main courses, more of the stew or in sauce things. But I do quite like making hors d'oeuvres or entree course too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make a lot of French dishes, but I do a lot of Asian food, particularly Indonesian and Malay food. Actually I'd say that I'm pretty cosmopolitan. I hardly do any English dishes though, except for, what I call family style cakes,so different from French cakes.
My cooking triumphs
I don't know that I have ever had any. Well, none that I would write home about anyway.
My cooking tragedies
The only REAL one happened about some 45-50 years ago. I still writhe when I think about it. I didn't know much about cooking but I DID want to impress a man. French AND a Count. I invited some others too. A Scottish friend gave me a foolproof recipe, which was delicious. Well it would have been if it had been. I did exactly what she told me to do. It wouldn't take much more than an hour. But it took hours and hours to cook and we were all starving. I forgot, it was a stew (cheaper cut of meat). Finally it was so tough that none of us could get it down. My friend forgot to tell me that she had cooked it in a pressure cooker. I never saw HIM again.

Honey Lime Chicken Wings
I thought it was delicious. I only had a couple of wings, so reduced the ingredients appropriately. I did think that the amount of honey was too much for the lime juice, so I added bit by bit, until I got the right mix for me.

Pork Tenderloin Diane
It is extremely quick to prepare. Good for the working person who wants to eat tasty and soon. I do agree that one must be careful with the lemon, but surely that is the same with salt, pepper etc. I followed it exactly(being careful of lemon). I did add salt as the recipe didn't seem to have any and ate it with small baby potatoes. I was cooking for one, so the sauce was sufficient, but certainly not enough for more people. I have never heard of lemon pepper and certainly cannot find it, so just used ordinary pepper.

Indian Tomato Chicken
I always grind my own spices. I didn't use anywhere near the amount of tomatoes suggested. I also put in a chilli instead of pepper. Curries are usually rather hot. I liked it well enough. Served with plain rice.
