Dad gave me my first cooking lesson when I was 5. He gave me a stalk of celery, a cutting board, and a knife. He cut two pieces and said, "Copy that."
My favorite things to cook
Japanese food is something I cook daily at home, but I love to bake bread, cookies, and cakes too. BBQ is also hugely fun as well as any sort of seafood.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pan-fried Pomfret with ginger and salt. Favorite dish as a kid and still a favorite dish today.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking tragedies
3 full racks and 4 hours of slow cooked spare ribs burned to a crisp because I didn't pay attention to weight.
