Grew up working as server/bartender/manager in restaurants and clubs.
My favorite things to cook
I'm pretty good at saute dishes. Grilling about anything, new favorite is grilled romaine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm usually called upon or volunteer to cook for family functions.
My cooking triumphs
Have the preparing of Prime Rib down to a science, thanks to Alton Brown.
My cooking tragedies
I can't cook the simple things w/o instructions or input from my wife, things like white rice, mashed potatoes, easy stuff that anyone would be able to do.
