I'm 50 years old and never learned to cook. I've taken up learning to cook this year and have really enjoyed it much to my surprise. I think I might actually be good at it too. LOL.
My favorite things to cook
Everything! I love walking through Whole Foods with a glass of wine and just coming across an ingredient and then finding a recipe to use it in. I'm trying to learn as much as possible about the various cooking processes and why certain ingredients react the way they do with other ingredients.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Not really any yet. No body in my family really every cooked for fun of cooking.
My cooking triumphs
Everyday is something triumphant!
My cooking tragedies
Omelette I didn't season the pan on well enough. Ended up looking more like scrambled eggs, but didn't make that mistake again.
