About this Cook
I am recently retired and spending my free time experimenting with recipes of the foods and cuisines that I have always been curious about.
My favorite things to cook
I love the flavors of Asia, India, all seafood and America's Southern Cuisine. I also love making soups out of what I have in my refrigerator and pantry. I call it "Refrigerator Soup".
My favorite family cooking traditions
My very favorite things to eat are sandwiches. The New Orleans Muffaletta and the Vietnamese Banh Mi are at the top of the list.
My cooking triumphs
I rarely cook the same thing twice the same way. I am always looking for a faster, simpler and tastier way to make a meal.
My cooking tragedies
For years I made Bouillabaisse for a small group that gathered at my house on Christmas Eve. When the small group turned into a crowd of 30, I decided to make the soup in a large turkey roaster. My mistake was to dump all of the clams and mussels into the roaster with the broth. The broth never got hot enough to open the shell fish and I had to dig them all out and throw them away. We had sea bass stew for Christmas Dinner.

Pacific Cuban Black Beans and Rice
These beans can also be served as a side dish without the rice. Add more vinegar for extra tang.

Chef John's Mayo Method Steak Sauce
I used mayo, soy sauce, lemon juice and dried basil. Yum. I even used this sauce to dunk artichoke leaves.
