About this Cook
I cooked professionally for about 30 years though I never got to the "chef" level. I was a very good back-up cook. I am most comfortable working from a recipe.
My favorite things to cook
I like to try new recipes and cooking methods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Having been to Europe, I enjoy cooking Belgium, French, German, and Italian.
My cooking triumphs
being able to cook a large menu meal, and with proper timing and presentation, serve all the hot food hot, and the cold food cold at the proper time, and still be able to sit and enjoy the meal with my guests. Sound easy? Try it sometime.
My cooking tragedies
my first baking powder biscuits that even the animals would not eat; and my first try at home baked bread.
