About this Cook
I’m Markell, I currently work as a Kitchen Manager at well known international steakhouse. My passion to cook started at a young age, when it was time to cook dinner, unlike other kids who were out playing, my mother made me sit down and observe and help her cook and prepare dinner. All those years of training paid off, and I took too cooking with a passion. Not only did my mother train me on how to cook, but she trained me how to be a independent man, free of being dependant on a woman.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking any and everything, there is nothing i wont try atleast once
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hands down Creole and Cajun, what most would call soulfood with a twist
My cooking triumphs
Making Mexican tamales, Man, those things took like 12 hours start to finish....
My cooking tragedies

Beef Tamales
this is by far the best recipe for tamales, the cooking liquid is key to a very good masa. Making these tamales are a treat worth waiting for.
