About this Cook
I am a guy who appreciates whoever fixed my profile pic after I mistakenly uploaded it as a recipe photo.
My favorite things to cook
French-Anything Fusion. I like to infuse French techniques into other kinds of foods, which is not exactly revolutionary (a lot of national cuisines adopted some level of French cooking a long time ago) but it's tasty and what I like doing.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Searing and deglacing.
My cooking triumphs
Baklava, cookies, pulled pork tacos, grilled chicken. The best thing I ever cooked was a mirepoix-based lentil soup.
My cooking tragedies
Curries, can't seem to get the hang of those.

Moroccan Tagine
Extremely tasty, I will definitely be making this one again. I made this because I had a butternut squash to get rid of, and I was expecting something like a sweet variation of a curry, but this was not like a curry. The squash ends up having quite a different texture than beans or lentils, it holds together surprisingly well, making the dish quite hearty. It tastes a bit like pumpkin pie, of course, but the ingredients like garlic and chicken give it a more subtle, complex flavor. I used tomato soup instead of diced tomatoes (which I didn't have handy), and threw a few extra spices in: a teaspoon of cardamom, and a few sprinkles of cinnamon and tumeric. I'll probably use a parsnip instead of a carrot next time: it fits the flavor profile better, if not the color profile.

Tasty Lentil Tacos
Very good, plus the taco shells dont get soggy and spill their goods.
