I joined an organic produce co-op in grad school and have been cooking regularly ever since. Lately I have been cooking more for my parents, one of whom is far more picky than is necessary.
My favorite things to cook
local, organic meats, dairy and produce
My cooking triumphs
Any time a dish and the chosen wine pair perfectly - that's a triumph. Or, if my father asks for seconds, that's a triumph too. I've gotten pretty good at salmon (not like it's hard!), balsamic vinaigrette, asparagus, and venturing into lamb lately.
My cooking tragedies
I am absolutely perfect at cooking and have never messed up a thing. Ha!
