My favorite things to cook
I love cooking with sauces and the farmers market is my best friend. I prefer to cook with fresh and local products.
I also like to use a variety of meats in my diet besides the regular chicken and beef I like to use venison, duck, lamb, pheasant and anything else I can get for a good price.
When I can I do a little gardening. Nothing is better than fresh tomatoes from your own backyard.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up in Atlantic Canada and I've enjoyed many traditional favourites. Donairs are one of my favourite treats from the east coast although I have no idea how to make them myself.
I do however cook some tasty east coast meals myself including boiled dinner and turnip kraut. Also my grandmother makes a delicious Solomon gundy, which I must be taught sometime in the near future.
My cooking tragedies
I have great interest in Asian food and I love to go to china town and Asian markets, but I never know what to do with most of the interesting food items available, so I usually just end up purchasing Asian candies and cookies.
