My family's from the Fiji Islands. I've grown up with a taste for all types of foods. I've been cooking for over 20 years (my mother believes the best skill for a woman is cooking; after all, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach!) Thankfully, I love cooking, and I especially love to bake.
My favorite things to cook
I will bake or cook pretty much anything. Whatever catches my fancy that day.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every dish I make, I always have at least 6-7 garlic cloves. And I always top each dish with cilantro.
My cooking triumphs
I made my very first sponge cake when I was 11 years old. It came out perfect. Every sponge cake I've made since has always fallen. But at least I made a good impression at an early age!
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list. I will need way more than 1000 words, believe you me!
