I'm currently a student of theology (of all things!) in Berkeley, seriously looking at cooking schools to take the next step in my education...
My favorite things to cook
Pastas, desserts, breads, pastries, cookies, cakes... the list goes on!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas Eve buffet with a huge selection of global foods -- German, Italian, French, Asian, etc. Everyone pitches in and we end up with so much food!
My cooking triumphs
Catering a Mothers' Day brunch a year ago. My pastries got such raves! I was solicited for many recipes and "re-makes" :)
My cooking tragedies
Nothing really so far... good start, right?
