I'm a Canadian living and working in South Korea. I cook for the local expat community in my current city of residence because many of us miss home cooking. I'm also learning and experimenting with Korean recipes and ingredients.

My favorite things to cook
I love to bake anything, and when I cook, I like to experiment with unlikely or unexpected food combinations.
In Korea, my most requested items are Red Velvet Cake, Cheesecake, and Pumpkin Pie. I also love to host big dinners at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Turkey with all the fixin's ^^
My cooking triumphs
I cooked an 11 kg turkey in a 34 liter convection oven, which seems impossible. I had to cut off the legs in order to fit the bird in the oven, so I fed the legs into the cavity. It didnlt look beautiful, but tasted great, and I was able to feed 13 hungry expats who were away from their families for the holidays.
My cooking tragedies
My oven cooks faster in the back left corner, so I have to babysit my cakes, pies, and cookies, constantly turning the pan so that everything cooks evenly.
