31 year old professional - Love cooking and passionate about food - Love cooking for people and entertaining - Cooking is the ultimate way to de-stress - My perfect day off from work would be spent grocery shopping in the morning, then cooking all day long for my dinner guests that night - Come from a Lebanese family that home cooks everything and who even make their own wine - My skills are about 50% self taught and the rest learned from my Mum (a true master in the kitchen).
My favorite things to cook
Italian - Lebanese - Mediterranean and Thai. Love baking anything from roasts to cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Starting every meal with a table full of Lebanese appetizers and a glass of home made wine. My Dad's spit roast lamb. Cooking anything with my Mum.
My cooking triumphs
Thai dinner party for 10. Many courses, a lot of planning and preparation, but it all came together like clockwork.
My cooking tragedies
Bechamel sauce still makes me nervous. It comes out right only 70% of the time, and the rest of the time when it fails, I either start over or end up skipping it altogether.
