About this Cook
Grew up in south Kilkenny, in the south east of Ireland, but moved to Amsterdam, The Netherlands when I was 22. Been living and working there since. I love to travel, and especially like sampling the food (and wine) of the area I'm visiting. :)
My favorite things to cook
Indian curries, stews, and casseroles. Favourite meats would be lamb and all kinds of game, but also love beef and chicken. I'm a carnivore! :) Just recently discovered slow cookers/crock pots - unheard of in The Netherlands. :) I don't like using tins of soups and other processed foods when cooking, I prefer the 'authentic' method. ;)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Although cooking complex recipes isn't necessary a challange and definitely not avoided, my mother always cooked straight-forward dishes with subtle flavours, so I actually love the taste of vegetables without any added garnish or sauces too. A recipe doesn't need to have lots of herbs and spices to be delicious. :)
My cooking triumphs
Making soup and main courses for a family weekend of 24 people. There were very few leftovers. :)
My cooking tragedies
Haven't had any so far. ;)

Turkey Pumpkin Enchiladas
These were delicious! Wouldn't change a thing although I used chicken in place of turkey as I find turkey very dry. Served with Corny Mexican Salad also from this site.

Kofta Kebabs
Perfect as is! We got 8 decent size kebabs from them - 2 each! Goes well with roasted bullhorn peppers stuffed with feta, couscous salad and tzatziki. Going to make them for our street party/BBQ this weekend. :)

Thai Monkfish Curry
Extremely easy to make and tasty dish. Be careful with the amount of curry paste you use, begin with a smaller amount and add more to taste. :) We upped the amount of monkfish a bit to serve 4 but kept the rest of the ingredients the same. There was still lots of sauce to go around. Served with steamed white rice and steamed baby green asparagus tips.
