About this Cook
I'm a pastry chef.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that can pass as a dessert. I can make anything out of marzipan.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Watching Julia Child on television with my Mum and Dad. Watching my Mum come up with unique ways to cover up cooking mishaps. Making far too many different kinds of cookies for Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
My first Wedding cake for a paying customer.
My cooking tragedies
When I was about 15 I wanted to make a batch of christmas cookies for my friends, so I preheated the oven (without looking inside) and started to make cookies. After about 10 minutes, an unusual smell filled the kitchen. It was the plastic tupperware that had melted into the 200+ christmas cookies my mother had been storing in the oven. All the cookies were ruined.

Uncooked Banana Pudding
This was a big hit. Someone suggested I bring this dish to every function from now on.

Fresh Rhubarb Bread Pudding
This was insanely good and very easy. I made it with some old whole wheat bread, added a little vanilla, and served it with a caramel sauce. It was a huge hit. It's one of the best recipes I've tried so far on AllRecipes.
