I have been cooking since I was 12. It started when, as a child, the family went camping, hiking and fishing. I spent 30 years cooking outdoors and amassed a collection of cast Dutch Ovens and Camp stoves and am able to cook most anything over a fire (and love it). I do however enjoy the air conditioning and am now learning the art of keep the kitchen clean as the meal progresses.
My favorite things to cook
I'm a certified BBQ judge and my grill has an axil and a tongue so... I enjoy smoking meats. I am in process of learning the art of Charcutiere.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up everything required one of two things....... Butter or Lard!!
