I am a 19 year old Undergraduate Student at a University College in BC. Since my mother left when i was 12, I Have been the "mother" in our family. I learned to cook at a young age, and built my culinary foundations upon recipes passed down through generations from my great-grandmother in Czechoslovakia. I have perfected many of these recipes, and have come to love cooking with a passion.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking gourmet, eye-pleasing meals. I love impressing people with culinary flair, but it doesn't have to be difficult or time consuming. I try to stick with recipes that minimize mess, and clean up, as well as as few dishes as i can get away with.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Many variations of traditional schnitzel have been passed down to me, and i proceeded to change them and add many new and exciting flavours.
My cooking triumphs
IN 2004 i was voted best teen chef 2004 in BC.
My cooking tragedies
I once made the WORST potato soup ever, i decided to abandon the recipe (that i had never used) and it turned out grey sludge. I have since improved my recipe greatly.
