Very active with road and mt. biking,surfing,hiking,gardening and photography. My wife Jan loves the fact that dinner is ready when she gets home from work. I was a cook before I was a meatcutter(the last 33 years)and have found the knowledge of how to cook invaluable in my trade.
My favorite things to cook
Lasagna,sushi,BBQ,bread,seafood,Mexican..just about anything but curry, Indian food or things that bite back.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking all day Thanksgiving and watching everyone enjoy my work.
My cooking triumphs

My cooking tragedies
No real tragedies, but numerous learning experiences.
