Me and My grandson
About this Cook
when I cook it not only has to taste good, but look good also. People eat with their eyes first! I've cooked at the Penn Club in New York, 2 restaurants, and 1 country club. All were awesome, and still learning. Graduated at Connecticut Culinary.
My favorite things to cook
I specialize in cheesecakes. Just something I decided to master.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking Hungarian foods inherited from my grandmother.
My cooking triumphs
Working at a country club as head saute'cook and juggling desserts at the same time.
My cooking tragedies
oh yes, I have, I made a cake once and after I frosted it, it just like, fell apart. I called it george's earthquake cake. It was around easter, so the frosting was a pastel purple and I just threw jelly beans over it, It did look kind of awesome if you looked at it. A tragedy turn master piece! Other than that if you want to say roasting garlic in a pan three times because you forgot because you were prepping other things, then yes THATS a tragedy.

Donut Muffins
I have not tried these yet bue will soon. Looks like alot of happy customers. i have one thing to say about a review. Nutmeg could be a powerful spice!! When i use it, especially fresh grated, I always use 1/3 of what the recipe calls for. It is one of those spices that you like or dont like. I do have to say also that the plain donuts at dunkin donuts, nutmeg is the sutile ingredient. So next time you have one. you will see....

Bacon Wrapped Pork Medallions
For those of you who dont know,,pork tenderloin IS the filet of the pork..this is why it is so tender..When i cook pork, i like the typical pork seasoning, rosemary and thyme along with salt and pepper and garlic or garlic powder

Pumpkin Rice Pudding
Although you might like the healthy version, you must try the recipe as it is first!... That is my rule of thumb. All rice is different and is not as starchy or as absorbable as the rest! I can soak up 6 cups of milk with 1 cup of reg med grain rice..Brown rice takes longer to asborb liquid than thw white rices...Cooking is a chemistry, you have to know what your doing before u start changing things, plus have the experience in doin so. From a professinal cook and chef yours truly George
