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.

Grilled Tilapia with Mango Salsa
I was going to have pork for lunch, then saw this recipe and decided that I would use it for the pork. However I did take some fish out for the evening. It was absolutely delicious for both. The mango salad was the same. My mango would have been better if it hadn't been so ripe, but I did like it so much. It was the first time that i have used the bag system for marinating and I can't say that I think much of it. Not a competent way of doing things and VERY hard to clean the bag after.

Remoulade Sauce a la New Orleans
I liked it but don't think I would bother again. I don't know why it is called a Remoulade, because apart from the mayonnaise, mustard and capers, it has nothing in common with the original.
