Coming from a Mediterranean culture food was always the main focal point of all the family gatherings. My grandmother and aunt where the main people who taught me how to cook as a child. Later on I experimented and tried a hand at working at the kitchen at Hilton. Now I am focusing on special needs and education as a career path.
My favorite things to cook
casseroles, cakes, sushi making, stews, making meatballs, home-made pizza,seafood dishes, experimenting with pasta sauces
My favorite family cooking traditions
My father's vinegar octopus a must at dinner parties.
My grandmother's stuffed onions.
My aunt's melomakarouna at Christmas time

My cooking tragedies
I was trying to reheat a green bean casserole for guests,that I had made in advance, but forgot I put it in the oven because of all the comotion and burnt the onions at the top
