I love traveling and experiencing new cultures/food.
I grew up all over the US, Bavaria Germany and Alto Adige. I went to University in Rome, Italy and am now living on the East Coast/USA.
My favorite things to cook
Italian and traditional American meals
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother's lasagna and my own twist on roasted whole chicken and root vegetables
My cooking triumphs
1. A baked whole black sea bass.
2. Chicken stock from my left over roasted chicken (the chicken soup I made from my stock is the best chicken soup I've ever had and I'm not one to toot my own horn!)
My cooking tragedies
Baked blue fish - holy moly it was horrible! It was my first attempt at cooking a whole fish...not only did I over cook it but I over powered it with too much lemon. My boyfriend continued to eat his portion (great guy! ha ha)despite the fact that I literally spit out my first bite. I didn't try cooking fish again for a year!
