Starving student who loves to cook for other people.
My favorite things to cook
Absolutely adore baking and making dessert. Made tons of cakes, , cookies, pastries, sweets, truffles.. you name it. I LOVE cooking too, but still have a lot to explore when it comes to savory dishes. There are a lot of spices and techniques I still have yet to try. I love exploring food from other cultures.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Family cooking traditions involve a lot of steaming and using a wok. Rice is also a staple, so creating flavorful, light, sharing dishes that go with rice is important to my family.
My cooking triumphs
-Creating the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe after trying over 100 recipes. I explored/tweaked to create my ideal cookie.
-Making a single batch of gourmet chocolates after many ruined expensive batches of unsuccessful tempering.
-Making authentic tasting Phad Thai from scratch.
My cooking tragedies
-Trying to temper chocolate correctly! Now that really needs skill! Took me SO many tries and it was messy, but I was finally able to make a batch of gourmet chocolates. I'll stick to purchasing it from now on. haha Different types of chocolate burn at different temperatures and must never have a drop of liquid mixed in or it will be ruined. Trust me I wasted A LOT of time and money! I'd love to learn from a professional one day.
-My first time making angel food cake from scratch when I was really young. I didn't mix the egg whites properly to create peaks and the cake was awful and sunken
