About this Cook
I've been cooking a variety of foods since I was about 16. The key to culinary joy in my opinion is variety and openness to a wide array of food options. The world of cuisine is vast and the potentially joyful tastes which await us are many. Nothing is more boring than being locked into a narrow array of foods.
My favorite things to cook
I love grilling outdoors. This includes vegetables, fresh garlic, fish and meats. Yummie. Dry rubs are awesome. I love making yeast breads indoors. Anything from heavy wheats to eggie Challahs. I have a penchant for soups and love a fresh creatively concocted garden salad.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom loved roasts. As a result, I will always love a well cooked roast and all the trimmings which can potentially come with that. Hungarian cuisine took center stage in my youth so I absolutely love paprika. I was blessed to be raised in a cooking (and eating-out) environment which was open to a wide variety of food possibilities. As a result, I have learned to experience diverse cultural approaches to food and love almost all of them.
My cooking triumphs
My soups. I love well made soup. My bread. Yeast is god's way of saying "pass the butter, please". :-)
My cooking tragedies
Not many really. Bad results typically have stemmed from inattentiveness to details (cooking times, temps, etc).
