I am an artist and a massage thereapist. in the pure sense of the words im a sensualist. I love taste and texture of food. I also view food as medicine and have a deep respect for what i put into my body
My favorite things to cook
Indian curries and grains! also,im new to vegan cooking and its a challenge that i love. I also appreciate raw foods. Presentaion is also fun.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother taught me to love food. She comes from a Polish/ Russian family so I grew up making patiza, potato pirogues, borsht and a lot of traditional foods. cooking was always a lot of fun growing up!
My cooking triumphs
Thats hard... I would have to say its when i dont follow any directions and let my conscious be the recipe
My cooking tragedies
i tried making an Asian dish and added some peanut butter on a whim. it tasted really wierd. not outright bad but so odd tasting that i just couldnt get it down.
