I'm 22 years old and I have lived in New Zealand all my life. I've done the odd bit of cooking over the years at home as every child does but for the last 3 years have had to up my game a bit now that I cook for a significant other :)
My favorite things to cook
My favourite things to cook would have to be stir-frys and dessert, especially anything with chocolate in it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family doesn't really have any cooking traditions as such, my mum has always done the cooking and my dad is hopeless in the kitchen(he's not alone I'm sure). Now that I live away from home the tradition is 'I cook, everyone else eats it'
My cooking triumphs
I suppose my best triumph so far is successfully making a pasta dish that I thought would take lots of practice to get right.
My cooking tragedies
I made an apple pie recently that leaked liquid everywhere as soon as I cut it open. It was tasty! Just more like juice than pie.
