About this Cook
Born and raised in Canada to a family that was always hungry for international foods, particularly Jamaican ones. Spent 7 years in South Korea and 3 years in China and have amassed a lot of knowledge of real true native Korean and Chinese cooking techniques and dishes.
My favorite things to cook
Tofu! And fresh killed chicken!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Jewish/Israeli, Jamaican
My cooking triumphs
One of my first baking ventures as a kid was a lemon meringue pie, which turned out perfectly (much to my mother's admiration who said it would be too difficult). Fantastic foods native to Chinese provinces, especially good with Hunan dishes. Dishes others made marked as favorites by others: Jamaican patties, Challah (traditional Jewish egg bread), Korean clams with peppers, Crabs boiling in homemade chicken stock with specialty Korean noodles, Hunan style spare ribs with bamboo shoots, Xibei province lamb hoof stew, and Chinese style chicken with mushrooms and peppers.
My cooking tragedies
Popsicles made out of pickle juice I tried to do as a kid

Grilled Tofu Skewers with Sriracha Sauce
Wow! This one should convert people to tofu! Very cheap to make, and a lot more filling than they look. And gorge all you like - they are really healthy! Use chicken for anyone not too keen on the tofu

Authentic Pepper Pot Soup
Amazing! I used pork instead of tripe, and a healthy dose of pepper, and the result was so incredibly good! Definitely one of the better recipes on here!

Gumbo Style Chicken Creole
Everyone went back for seconds! I added chicken stock (quite a bit) and chorizo sausage, as well as substituting the hot sauce for cayenne. Instead of tomatoes with chilli pepper I added regular chopped tomatoes and two habanero/Scotch Bonnet peppers. A huge hit!
